I worshiped at two services in the two days before Christmas. One had a lot inspiring diversity but wasn't as comfortable as I would have liked. The other was comfortable but had almost no diversity. That got me to wondering if the two are almost mutually exclusive.
The wives of the two candidates for president made their husbands sound like saints. What if the spouses of the people running for mayor of one of our villages tried to do that? Familiarity breeds if not contempt, at least a more realistic picture of who is running.
