The Center Did Not Hold

Colin MacIver

Racism is present in our nation, and there is tension between races and classes. There is a danger of the center not holding politically. When Walker Percy wrote, “the center did not hold,” in Love in the Ruins, he wasn’t speaking just politically, but the interior state of the person.

In today’s podcast, Colin gives some pointers on where we can find our center.

The center is only found in Jesus Christ’s grace and mercy. Our minds and hearts must be fixed on him. He is the only one who will save us.
