We’re going into a new year with COVID-19 still part of the conversation. The ongoing pandemic has been exhausting, isolating, and even socially divisive.

Pew Research Center surveyed citizens from 13 developed nations in 2020 and again in 2021. It showed that feelings of division across these countries during the pandemic only increased — sometimes by more than 30 percentage points.

Despite growing divisions, we as Christians can’t forget our calling to make disciples for Jesus.
