Last week’s sermon focused on the necessity of keeping religion and government separate. But if “separate” means each kept in its own bubble, we lose the key function of the separation: to keep each other free from the abuse of power inherent in idolatry. To serve that function, religion and politics can’t be enemies lobbing grenades at each other; they must be in dialogue.

The bridge between religion and politics is those of us who inhabit both spheres. We are citizens of a nation and also adherents of a religion. Yet we have been told for many decades that it is impolite (or worse) to talk about either religion or politics. Which means we have developed no skills for doing so. And it shows. This sermon proposes ways we might change that.
