"Though we cannot think alike, may we not love alike? May we not be of one heart, though we are not of one opinion? Without all doubt, we may."
Read this John Wesley quote last week. Our pastor ended a letter by quoting it. The thought of love winning over ideology compels me. Is it really possible to see past our differences and embrace the best in others? Is it possible, in this age of political polarization, to really find common ground and areas of agreement? I suggest to you that it is only possible if we move away from the political and religious extremes. Perhaps it is only possible if we embrace an extreme flavor of love?
