It occurred to me recently that our country has experienced something similar to a divorce, “politically speaking.”
I suppose there’s always been tension between Democrats and Republicans (and other groups), but for some reason it seems to be getting worse. At least that is what the media would have us think. I know this is not true for everyone. Personally, I have lots of wonderful friends from various political thoughts, and we all get along and care for each other. But there are also lots of people who’ve experienced incredible heartache over political tensions, and have ended their relationships as a result. Going separate ways is not so much the problem (we are only human), it’s more about the inability to get along after a “divorce.”
This deeply sadness me, mostly because the ones who suffer the most are our children . . . and our future generations. Our children are watching. What are we teaching them in the way we handle our disagreements? Jesus said, “Blessed at the peace makers” (Matthew 5:9).
So how do we live peacefully with each other, in the same world, after a “divorce”? Continue reading “The Great Divorce [10 Tips to Help Democrats and Republicans Find Peace]”

Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” ~ Philippians 4:6-7 MSG
