I think it is important for those who name the name of Christ to reflect and pray deeply during this time of great political controversy and divide in our country. We do this, not simply from a particular political point of view, but as those who seek to be witnesses to Christ, regardless of our particular political ideas.
As Christians we begin with the conviction that : ”government is God’s instrument for caring for the people.” (David Lose, In the Meantime.com) People have different points of view as to how that is best done and carried out in the world.

"It is not our task to conquer or convert the world or to enforce uniformity of belief. It is our task to be a blessing to the world. The use of religion for political ends is not righteousness but idolatry." (Rabbi Jonathan Sacks)[i]
