Jesus is someone who really made a change where he was, and his love was sacrificial. If that's the Jesus that we teach, especially in my Evangelical spaces, that would be a game-changer for the way people view politics, for the way people view how change should be done in our country.
Politics, however, is not synonymous with partisanship. Politics is the conversations we have with each other about the decisions we make about how the polis will be led. In fact, our founding president told us that if it ever gets to be too partisan, we will no longer be able to govern. We are at that point.
