I was baptized when I was 8 years old of my own accord. My paternal grandfather was a Church of Christ Minister in eastern Kentucky. I was brought up in the church and have benefitted from my involvement. Although I am agnostic, I believe that virtually all religions contain universal truths. Current politicians on both sides feign and ignore their fundamental purpose…to serve. We are either or brother’s keeper or our brother’s enemy. There is no middle ground.
