A Seat at the Table
By Jon Carlson
This is the fifth installment in our six-week visual series on exploring what God’s love looks like, when we live it out in our world. If you’re just joining us, you can begin with the first installment here.
Today, try to reach out to someone who disagrees with your politics. Schedule a time to get together for lunch or coffee. As you prepare to meet, ask God to give you the grace to be “quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry” (James 1:19).
