For many, politics is a regular topic of conversation and thought. Others avoid thinking or talking about politics because of discomfort and frustration. For either kind of viewer, Dr. Russell Moore discusses why politics matter (primarily as Christians and secondly as Americans), where we should place politics on our list of priorities, and how we can best serve our community both inside and outside of the political realm. He also talks about how Christians should go about choosing a candidate.
