One Thing You Missed: Christianity and Healthy Democracy

Tweet Share

This has been an abnormally tumultuous week in U.S. politics. And as the 2020 election cycle is ramping up and the national conversation has turned toward impeachment, one thing I wanted to highlight for you, especially this week, was the release of a major new report from the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, “Faith and Healthy Democracy.” In a time of tribalism and polarization, we wanted to learn more about how evangelical Christians might contribute to healing political and cultural divides in the United States. Though some of the findings from the report were things I probably would have predicted, many of them were truly surprising, and I am pleased to commend it to you. You can learn more about the report and its findings at the links below.

We live in a fearful and cowardly time. The crisis we face is not a crisis of clarity but a crisis of courage.
