Best-selling author and megachurch pastor Max Lucado’s op-ed went viral in February when he uncharacteristically broke his silence on politics, decrying Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s crude antics. But this week he shared his dream where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton “reached a truce.”
In his blog post titled “Trump, Hillary, and the Strangest Dream,” Lucado recounts falling asleep after watching the Republican National Convention. Also weighing on his mind as he slept was news of national crises like the shooting violence of police officers and African American citizens.
But the convention he dreamed about was not the RNC.
“In my dream a change settles over the Convention. People are quiet, reverent. Crowds gather outside, not to protest, but to witness something extraordinary. Word is out that a meeting has occurred. Trump and Hillary talked long into the night. Who suggested the meeting? What was the agenda? Did their teams huddle in corners? My dream gives no details,” Lucado writes.
Lucado continued that in his dream the two presidential candidates stepped out and jointly addressed the nation and as they did, “a fresh wind blows across the country. They’ve come to a conclusion; they’ve reached a truce. No more tackiness. No more below-the-belt stuff.” The presidential election goes on but the “bitterness” stops.
While the dream stops there, he longed for the candidates to go a step further with both of them stating, “Here is the truth. We don’t know how to heal this country. But God does,” and both of them kneel down and ask God to have mercy on America, all captured on national television for the world to see.
Lucado concedes that this scenario is unlikely to happen but he says at least Christians can humble themselves and pray in their bedrooms and living rooms for the nation.
