The government shutdown finally ended this week, but its effects on people across the country continue to linger, highlighting the growing disconnect between our elected leaders and ordinary Americans, including mainstream people of faith.

Doran is the executive director of ISAIAH, a faith-based community organization of 100 Minnesota congregations.
