It is sobering to realize that practically every other person I meet walking down the street disagrees with my politics; the statistics say that roughly 1 out of every 2 people I meet in the grocery store today cast a vote opposite to mine in last week’s election. Like much of the rest of the country, the vote in our area was split roughly down the middle. So, here we have the miracle of democracy: we agree to disagree and we move forward together. Unity is a standing principle of community building. We are not looking for the infamous intolerance of the self assured. The unity we seek is born of the humble quest to see ourselves and our opinions in light of the reality that the ebb and flow of earthly politics and power is always under heaven’s gaze.
