Manhattan —

In a presidential campaign that has left 80 percent of voters feeling “disgusted,” one Downtown church tried to heal the partisan divide with a series of services focusing on childhood pictures of the two candidates, in the hope of moderating the “disgust mechanism” they trigger in parishioners.

Trinity Grace Church Tribeca hosted a series of “Election Vespers” services in September and October which invited parishioners meditate on pictures of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as adults, and then as children.
