Searching for Balance

Serious believers wrestle with keeping faith and activity in the public square in balance. It's not easy and both conservatives and progressive Christians often err on the side of wanting their views to predominate. Responsible citizenship, both in the Kingdom of Heaven and the earthly government, seeks to influence public policy with the recognition that real faith is both public and private and seeks appropriate communication of both. Again, its not easy!

The Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, of the Interfaith Alliance, speaks to this in a way that is both plain and profound.
