We live in an age of polarization. You have experienced it and seen its devastating effects on our common life. What makes this polarization so insidious is that it’s surprisingly easy to join in demonizing people who look differently, believe differently and act differently without even realizing it’s happening. Or worse, while justifying it as righteous. So what can you do to fight the rising tide of polarization? First, call it what it is – a sin. Next, ask yourself, “How would Jesus want me to treat this person?” Then, show some grace.
