The Great Divide

Certain things in life are just naturally at odds--forcing you to choose between one and the other. We’re often told that there is such a divide between things like faith and reason or joy and responsibility that you simply can’t have both. You’ve got to choose. But if that weren’t actually the case? Christians have long believed that a faith in Jesus Christ not only grants us a saving relationship with God the Father, but offers us a worldview that informs, and in many cases, bridges the world’s greatest divides.
