Election Year

This year is once again an election year.  It feels as though the campaigning has been going on forever and to some degree, I am ready for it to be over.  It will be interesting to see what happens in the next two months, and then in the next four years of a new administration. 

I believe that it is important to be a part of the political process.  As a pastor, I encourage people to participate to the degree that they are comfortable, but I hope that everyone will at least do a little research and cast their vote.  A while back, I saw a listing of the candidates stances on a variety of topics and easily made my choice.  There are clear differences between McCain and Obama. 

The church of course must be bipartisan.  Christians come in both red and blue.  Individuals can have differences of opinion politically and still worship together in unity.  It is my prayer that whichever way the election goes this year that we will be able to work together for a better future.  Whoever wins, at our church and in my own devotional time, our next president and our other governmental leaders will be regularly lifted up in prayer, that they may make the right decisions for our country.
