We inhabit a nation that is deeply and bitterly divided. Skimming the newspaper headlines or sifting through the major cable news networks reveals this sentiment all too clearly. At nearly ever level, whether socially or racially, spiritually or educationally, politically or financially, there appears to be an increasingly expanding chasm of difference between each and eve...
