Many Americans are grieving over the state of the nation. We see the bleeding out of our federal government in trillions of debt. 45% of our households pay no taxes, yet politicians are demanding that those who do - must pay more. We face terrorism on the front page of every newspaper and people are losing hope that any change will work.

Is there a role for a Christian in the midst of this tragedy? Does loving my neighbor mean I have an obligation to civic responsibility, to voting, to my country? Or can I simply look away and keep walking? We look at America and the parable of The Good Samaritan this week on The Public Square® .
