A few months ago, an obituary ran in the Richmond Times Dispatch in Richmond, Virginia that said in part:
“Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose instead to pass into the eternal love of God on Sunday, May 15.”
Some of you read that and may have thought, “I didn't even know that was on the ballot.”
To say that it was a particularly brutal election season would be an understatement. Maybe like me you thought that after November 9, everything would calm down and things would get back to normal; that seems like such a quaint thought now!
We took a break from our conversation about “Foundations on this Sunday because it seemed like we needed time to reflect and look to the scriptures during this post-election hangover and think about what we have learned. How we should respond as followers of Jesus Christ going forward in a country that is deeply divided?
