Religion

In modern culture the ability to make decisions and choose the right path in life has extremely high value. But through the faith believers voluntarily surrender to God in love and joy.

Politics

God seeks to transform relationship with and between people. If politics is about how we choose to live together and to treat one another, there is surely a place for discerning the activity of God in politics.
