Finding Unity in a Polarized World

I recently wrote a guest editorial in Christian Courier, an independent Canadian Christian newspaper. I chose to write about biblical starting points towards finding unity in the midst of an increasingly polarized world. Here’s an excerpt from my editorial, “Towards Unity”:

There is no unity without humility. Humility is the first step towards unity and reconciliation because you need to be humble enough to admit that there might be some truth or some goodness in the other party’s position, and that, perhaps, there is the possibility that you might still have some mistaken notion in yours, and that peace and reconciliation for the common good is more important than you having your way. Humility is being willing to lay down your own ambition or pride. It is being willing to not win an argument. It is being willing to not “come out on top.”

You can read the rest here on Christian Courier’s website.
