Choose Wisely

On November 6, 2012, Election Day, we will exercise our right to choose.

Some of us will choose to vote for Barack Obama.
Some of us will choose to vote for Mitt Romney.
Some of us will choose to vote for another candidate.
Some of us will choose not to vote.

During the day of November 6, 2012, we will make different choices for different reasons, hoping for different results. But that evening while our nation turns its attention to the outcome of the presidential election, let’s again choose differently. But this time, let’s do it together.

This is the message from “Election Day Communion,” an initiative of the Mennonite Church. They, and other faith communities, will gather for prayer and communion, to share in unity on a day where much of our country may be divided.

Now is the time for us all to make our votes clear. Through the power of the Holy Spirit,

may God take your shoes,
and fill them with feet that follow the way of Jesus;

may God take your lips,
and make them proclaim the good news of Jesus;

may God take your hands,
and make them touch the world’s wounds with the healing and compassion of Jesus;

and may God take your hearts, and set them on fire for Jesus!

For this is the year of the Lord’s favor:

Blessed be the name of the Lord!
