Culture War
Many from both the right and the left bemoan the state of the American culture today. Whether it is the lack of positive images in TV, movies, music, politicians, sports figures, police in schools and more, freedom and morality are discussed as being in conflict with each other. Benjamin Franklin once wrote on the subject: "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need for masters." This should ring true to you today as we debate not only our eroding culture, but the role of government in our lives. Are culture and the need for more government control more connected than we realize?

God's Servant First: Our King of Peace

It is easy to get caught up in the polarizing habits of the current American political culture.

When I decide to hold a cluster of positions in opposition to yours simply because you are on the other side, then our relationship is polarized.

Its one thing to disagree, but it is another to take a side on an issue before considering what the truth of the matter is. And that's what polarization is all about.

"Bid Thou our sad divisions cease and be Thyself our King of Peace."
