A House Divided: Political Chaos, Churchly Conflict, and the Spirit of Christ

September 30, 2020
“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” – Jesus Christ Regardless of your political persuasion, I believe many of us who watched the first of the U.S. presidential debates were shocked and dismayed.
