It has been 1,225 days since an all-time-high turnout of British voters chose, by a 52 to 48% margin, to Leave rather than Remain in the European Union. Now with a general election set for Dec. 12, it looks like Britain is finally about to escape the EU's "ever closer union."

I was recently reading in Luke 7:19-22 where John the Baptist is found awaiting his execution in Herod’s prison. He sends two of his disciples to Jesus to clarify some doubts he was experiencing. His disciples convey the message, “Are You the Expected One, or do we look for someone else?”

Although some people have an impression of Christianity that leads them to believe it’s a private, monastic, solitary life, nothing could be further from the truth. Christianity has always been public, shared in public, and lived in public. It was never intended to be otherwise.
