Dear Church Family,

Do I wait until after the election is over to write a newsletter article? This is the question on my mind and heart. Undoubtedly there will be winners and losers. The system is designed for this very purpose. So, I guess the better question is, “How will we respond to election results?”

First, I suggest we do what we are called to do. Pray for those in authority. Pray for their well-being and pray that their decisions will be divinely inspired to bring peace to the nation and justice for all.

Secondly, we have been given a responsibility by virtue of our citizenship to work together for the good of everyone. Do your part to influence those in power to be servant leaders on behalf of all people.

Lastly, make sure that your personal life is one which reflects the biblical mandate shared by the apostle Paul to the Christians in Ephesus. “As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” See ya soon.

Blessings,
Pastor Malcolm
