How can we help lead and shepherd our local churches to overcome political tribalism? In this week's conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Patrick Miller. Patrick is a pastor at The Crossing in Columbia, Missouri. He's also the co-host of the Truth Over Tribe podcast and the co-author of the award-winning book, Truth Over Tribe. Together, Patrick and Jason look at some of the challenges that pastors face when it comes to political divisiveness in their communities and even in their congregations. They look at the difference between the politics of Jesus and the political partisanship that we see so often in our culture. Then Patrick shares some practical steps and even some incredible stories of hope for seeing people overcome the divisiveness and embrace a kingdom-focused and Christ-centered way of living.

Some key takeaways from this conversation:
Patrick Miller on reflecting Jesus: "We need to live out the politic of Jesus, rather than getting fixated on the horse race in Washington, DC."
Patrick Miller on discipleship: "We can't remain silent with our people because if you don't disciple them in their politic… someone else will."
Patrick Miller on true friendship: "A confidant is someone who not only shares your mission, but deeply values you… they want what's best for you."
