With all the political turmoil and social conflict brought on by this election season, it’s easy to feel like you don’t have control of anything. However, with the parable of talents, Jesus reminds us that each of us has to role to play in building the kingdom of God’s love. The only way to get it wrong, he says, is to do nothing!
Join us this Sunday for worship we prepare our spirits for Election Day.
Prayer for This Sunday:
God, forgive us for the times we’ve failed to treat each other as Your creation. Forgive us for celebrating unloving behavior in our candidates and our leaders. Call our leaders and political candidates to a new level of respect and civility. Remind them that You are sovereign and that the wisest choice we can make is to serve You and serve others. May there be a new movement of collaboration and respect in our nation’s capital and throughout the country. Give Your people the strength to lead by example with radical, world-changing love.
