Divided and Disgusted

Posted by / in issues of the day / No comments yet

America’s political scene has never been this divided, nor have so many people been completely disgusted with the whole process. As I travel people ask in amazement about how America’s politics works. It seems incomprehensible — even to Americans these days. My Singaporean friends say that they look for competence in their leaders and America looks for celebrity. I can’t deny that.

This blog is not a political harangue to promote one party or another, but it’s to ask our B4B readers to pray.

As I’ve worked, lived and traveled around the world I’ve seen that America is both loved and hated. Sometimes it has been a good thing to be an American, but sometimes it hasn’t. And frankly, the last few years it has mostly not been a good thing at all. America is the place and culture people love to hate. We are often arrogant and believe we have the answers even before we know what the questions are. I admit that. But America does fulfill a role in the world that other countries don’t.

Standing at the Crossroad of Asia and Europe

Europe and Asia divide in Ural Mountains

Europe / Asia divide in Ural Mountains

It was a warm September day when I stood with one foot in Europe and the other in Asia in the Ural Mountains near Yekaterinburg. This Siberian city has a long and rich history. It is where both a Russian tragedy and the birth of a modern Russian leader took place. Russia itself covers both Asia and Europe. The formation of Russia was Asian. They had Asian roots and Asian dress. As Russia covered more territory, they began to look west. Tsar Peter the Great decreed they could no longer dress as Asians at the court. They must look European in their dress. Thus began a new era of Russian history.
