Try using prayer

To the Journal editor:

Rather than taking sides in the Marquette Area Public Schools teachers union/school board impasse, how about everyone on all sides committing the issue to prayer and asking the Holy Spirit for his answer.

Scoffers will ask where that is going to get us. Well, where is the current approach getting us?

Prayer is both communal and transformative, so there is no doubt where I am placing my energies.
