Leadership must have ability to unify

In Mark 3:25, Jesus states, “And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”

As America faces unprecedented challenges, we are tragically divided and more vulnerable than ever before. Before we cast our votes, we must identify candidates committed to healing the rift that divides decent people.

We must search out candidates who understand that the ability to sustain civil discourse is the essential leadership quality. We must expect our leaders, when elected, to weigh all reasonable, reliable, and relevant input to arrive at workable solutions.

We cannot afford to continue to give a pass to politicians who routinely follow their party line despite empty promises to vote in the best interests of their constituents.

We cannot afford to continue to give power to those who use that power to enhance their own positions at the expense of the people.

Remember, “United we stand; divided we fall.”
