We're in the midst of much turmoil and what most everyone sees as a crucial election. As people of faith, we know love of neighbor means we need to take seriously our respon-sibility to care for our neighbor and to elect leaders who will do the same. Our faith informs our vote.
As followers of Jesus - called our Wonderful Counselor and Prince of Peace - we are called to a high standard of en-gagement and interaction with our fellow citizens of the United States. To do that when the atmosphere is hot and our exchanges with others can get heated can be difficult.
The United Church of Christ has prepared a short resource titled, "Being a Civil Voice in Uncivil Times". (Use the button below to view and read it.) It can be a valuable resource as you try to calmly engage in conversations with others about election results in the days ahead.
Choosing the leaders who will take us into the future in an all-citizen affair. Let your faith and Christian ethics guide both your thinking and your behavior in days ahead - whatever the outcomes are.
