SPOTLIGHT: Horace Cooper Shares A Hopeful Vision for the Future

Written by Ecce Verum

Is the American church dying or reviving? Is being black synonymous with being a progressive liberal? In this episode of the Illinois Family Spotlight podcast, Monte Larrick addresses these and other questions with Horace Cooper, who is currently the Chairman of the Project 21 National Advisory Board and formerly a law professor and senior counsel to a majority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives.

As they explore the black community’s current position in America and assess the strengths and failings of the American church, Larrick and Cooper address topics ranging from Christian charity to the declining black support for the Democratic party. Is the American church under attack for the right reasons? How important is the spiritual realm as we live our life here? And is there a revival around the corner? What about black Americans in particular—are Democrats in danger of losing the black vote? And are progressive principles truly the way to help the black community?

Join them as they discuss a hopeful vision for the church and politics, as well as the role of organizations like Project 21 in making it a reality.
