Alex Chediak says, “Last fall Pew Research found that about 80 percent of both Trump and Biden supporters had few or no friends who supported the opposing candidate. Add to this a drop in civic engagement, church attendance and social functions in the wake of the pandemic, and you’ve got a lot of lonely people stuck in their homes, listening to the political entertainment of their favorite cable anchor while crafting angry Facebook and Twitter posts about “them.”

“As Christians, it falls on us to show the world what genuine community should look like.

Our social engagement should be marked by modesty, sound reason and charity. We can appeal to the heart, but we should not bypass the mind. We’re seeking to persuade, not manipulate. 

Be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to become angry (James 1:19).

Don’t make sweeping generalizations about those who differ.

Present your ideas not with condescension but as gifts. A gift is offered in love to do the other person good. The tone of the offer matters, as does our willingness to accept the gift’s rejection. The relationship matters more than the argument. Play the long game.”
