We’re at a critical juncture in our nation’s history, and this is NOT the time for voter apathy within our congregations.
Yet the unfortunate reality is that many conservative voters of faith are less inclined to register to vote, and are less likely to actually vote. Why is that?
If you value our religious liberties… If you can see the incredible ways God has blessed our nation (despite this pandemic)… If you believe that spiritual values should be a cornerstone for the decisions we make in all levels of society… then I hope you can see how important it is to participate in our elections.
Pastors and church leadership: you have an important role here. Not insofar as your church endorsing any particular candidate, of course, but instead encouraging your congregation to be part of the process — to be involved in the conversation and make sure their values are heard. The most fundamental part of that is just showing up to vote!!
Below is a link to an excellent guide covering what churches can and cannot do in politics. If you’re a member or leader in one of our local churches, please don’t sit idle. Please encourage your church family to get educated on the issues and vote!
