Preach and Pray to Confront Christian Nationalism

Faithful America is organizing a sermon drive against Christian nationalism for next Sunday, June 11 — the week of Flag Day. We’re calling it “Preach and Pray to Confront Christian Nationalism.”

Preachers and worship leaders who sign up to participate will receive a free toolkit with sample prayers and sermon resources, including a quote from Shane about flags in church.

Unholy Christian nationalism is the biggest threat to both democracy and the church today — and we’re doing something about it.

Along with our allies at organizations like Vote Common Good and the Florida Council of Churches, Faithful America is launching a sermon and prayer drive against Christian nationalism. On Sunday, June 11 — the week of Flag Day — hundreds of Christian preachers across the country will take a stand against the hijacking of our faith.

Together, we will reject theocracy, hatred, and Christofascism — and in their place take a prophetic, Christ-like stance for peace, faith, hope, and love.

Take the pledge to preach or pray against Christian nationalism during your church’s services on June 11 below now, and Faithful America will send you helpful liturgical and lectionary resources to aid you in this work.
