We know our country is dangerously polarized. But what to do about it? It is tempting to hope that maybe our side can just triumph over our enemies. Unfortunately, that isn’t likely. Instead, we need to following the teachings of Father Zosima:
“There is only one way to salvation, and that is to make yourself responsible for all men’s sins. As soon as you make yourself responsible in all sincerity for everything and for everyone, you will see at once that this is really so, and that you are in fact to blame for everyone and for all things.”
In this conversation, Andrew Hanauer and Zachary Davis will discuss the difficult but necessary path to recognizing our own role in the culture war and the imperative of truly following Jesus’ call to “love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.”
