Far too often pastors feel pressured to remain silent on Gospel issues because society has co-opted the issues into mere partisanship. If your pastor begins to speak up on issues of race, immigration, poverty, incarceration, and education, don't glibly assume this is because your pastor has "gone political." It's because your pastor is following her convictions on the implications of Jesus' Kingdom "here as it is in heaven." This is why Christians have historically stood up for healthcare, the imprisoned, refugees, and women considering abortion. Before Christianity was co-opted for partisan purposes, these causes were seen as integral to (not distinct from) claiming "Jesus is Lord."
