PRLog - Sep. 7, 2012 - WASHINGTON, D.C. -- WASHINGTON, D.C. –The National Presbyterian Church (NPC) will host “Uncommon Decency: Christian Civility in an Uncivil Season,” at its northwest DC campus on September 29, from 9 a.m. to noon, featuring Dr. Richard Mouw, President of Fuller Theological Seminary and New York Times columnist Ross Douthat.

The conference will explore civility from a Christian perspective, reflecting on what it means for Christians to be “both faithful and polite” in the public square, particularly during what by all accounts is shaping up to be a rather partisan political season as we head toward the first Tuesday in November. “Uncommon Decency” features three well-known authorities on American religion and politics. Dr. Mouw, Professor of Christian Philosophy and President of Fuller Theological Seminary, is the author of numerous books including Uncommon Decency: Christian Civility in an Uncivil World. Douthat, a conservative Catholic was Senior Editor at The Atlantic before joining the staff of the New York Times in 2009. He is a blogger, opinion writer and the author of Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics, a recently published critique of certain strains of American Christianity. The event will be moderated by Michael Cromartie, Vice President at the Ethics & Public Policy Institute.

Cost for the conference is $15 if pre-registered ($20 at the door); Students are free if pre-registered ($5 at the door). For more information about registering for this event, visit http://www.nationalpres.org/conferences

NPC hosts a variety of speakers and lecturers throughout the year. This fall, Senior Pastor of The National Presbyterian Church, Dr. David A. Renwick will be addressing significant questions of faith and spirituality that face our generation beginning August 26 and running every Sunday through November 25.
