Grace & Truth in the Cultural Divide
It seems the cultural divide in our country is becoming more pronounced, and more bitter. As a result, there is mounting pressure to choose a side. Do you feel it?
Choosing a side can fuel the bitterness even more. Not only that but it promotes a rose-colored view of one side and a caricature of the other.
