Drawing fish in the sand

by Jan Schroder

Early Christians, unsure if a stranger was a believer or persecutor, drew a line in the sand. If the stranger drew a corresponding line, forming a fish, conversation flowed. If not, they’d part.

The Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearings are just the latest event splitting America in half along partisan, political – tribal – lines. When I meet someone these days, I don’t draw a line in the sand, but I do listen carefully for markers, knowing whether we can talk freely or divert before battle.

If we don’t repair our differences, we’ll eventually be united involuntarily – by a common, deadly enemy.
