Sojourners, a pillar of the American religious left that was founded during the Vietnam War, is working on its own curriculum to address polarization in churches. “The church should be one of the few places where you can bring together people of very different ideological perspectives and political leanings, and be able to create a space for civil dialogue that’s rooted in core Christian principles and values,” said Sojourners President Adam Taylor. “Part of the reason we have been developing this curriculum is we realized that many clergy and pastors don’t have the training, tools or experience doing that.”
