During times of political upheaval, politics can end up filling our minds and our social media newsfeeds to the point where it becomes overwhelming to our souls. It seems we are simultaneously drawn to and repulsed by the political news and debates that get us all fired up. We long to be passionate about something. We long to stand for a cause greater than ourselves. But then we need a break. We don’t operate well in a state of constant intensity. Our souls need rest.
