I just talked with a friend who ended up reconnecting with some high school friends from 40 years ago. They’ve all been having regular Zoom meetings and catching up on family, children, and other life events. But my friend lamented that they don’t talk about religion or politics for fear of stepping on anyone’s toes. So why are we so afraid to talk about two of the most important topics in life? Religion is simply what we believe our relationship to God is and how we live that out. Politics is how we agree to govern ourselves and live together peacefully in society. God is the ultimate reality central to our lives. And so long as we hope to maintain maximum freedom, our Creator must be recognized as central to our government. And this is a conversation worth having.
