This is not a sermon - this is a political essay. It is an attempt to explain why we are so divided, why the United States is worth saving , and what ordinary people like you and me can change in ourselves to reduce the polarization in our country. I tried to write in a way that would make sense to both progressives and conservatives which probably means I probably just annoyed everybody! Although I know my faith informs my positions, this audio article is meant to be a argument limited to the realm of human politics and I hope it will be useful to you whether you have any faith or none. I welcome your honest critique and value one on one conversations when possible.
