Friday, November 6
My Friends,

So, what is our church, what are Christians across the United States to do in this post-election world?

First, we keep on doing what we were doing before the election: We worship and glorify God, we follow Jesus Christ as we live his mission in our communities, we care for one another and those in our community who need us.

As important as elections are that set a course for the direction of our country and our communities, they pale in importance to the call of the church to gather to worship the God of all nations and all ages.

God is still God, and the promises of God are eternal. The mission of God through Jesus Christ continues to shape our lives and provide the foundation for our future.

There is no need for despair if your party lost because God’s promises are not thwarted by popular votes or an electoral college. And if your party won, don’t make the mistake of thinking the kingdom of God has been inaugurated with your candidate.

The Scriptures tell us God will heal our land, but it isn’t by elections, as important as they are. It will be when God’s people learn to live their faith as those before us have taught us to love one another as Christ has loved us.

Grace and peace,
