The politics over the confirmation of a new Supreme Court justice along with the election in two weeks is revealing the deep division in our country. Monday we’ll step into and outside of the political theater with Dr. Mark Caleb Smith. Dr. Smith will offer a historical and Biblical perspective to the current political climate and how we can thoughtfully navigate this pre-election frenzy.
