Responding to the divisiveness in society today

In times of social divisions, widespread cynicism, and growing mistrust of institutions, is there something we can contribute to help bring more unity and peace? Is there something we can do to build up our own confidence and trust, to feel more hopeful about society’s future, as well as our own?

Consider that during the early days of Christianity, it was also a time of turbulent politics and insecurity about where society was heading. As the disciples of Christ Jesus were spreading the gospel of God’s kingdom, the young Christian community in the Middle East still labored under the rule of a foreign, invading government, whose political and cultural center was the great city of Rome. What in our times have been called “culture wars” would certainly have been troubling to many people living throughout the vast Roman Empire of two thousand years ago.
