Bishop's Column
Written by Bishop Robert C. Morlino

Dear Friends,

We find ourselves in the wake of an election season that has divided our country, broken friendships, and even estranged families to an extent I’ve never witnessed in my life.

Now, engaging in and taking the human science/art of politics seriously is an objectively good thing.

But that anyone would or could allow their politics, a candidate, or an election to keep them from talking to a friend or loved one, for any period of time, or to “unfriend” someone is beyond my comprehension.
