True leadership

As I ponder a divided political landscape, I often think about an experience that taught me about true leadership and how it can heal division wherever it appears in our lives. Seeing how prayer brought resolution to a contentious jury deliberation strengthened my conviction that turning to God to heal seemingly intractable conflicts is both practical and applicable to any situation, large or small. 

About ten years ago I was on a jury for a felony DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol) case. We sat through a week of testimony from the defendant and his girlfriend as well as numerous police officers and expert witnesses. Then we went to the jury room to decide the case.
