This is a great perspective on our current elections and political process!

John Yates, rector of the Falls Church (Anglican) in Falls Church, Virginia shared some thoughts on the election in his parish weekly bulletin this past Sunday:
If you want to be in a church in which the pastor tells you how you should be voting in this coming election, you are surely in the wrong church, although there are and have been historically many such churches. Most of us have strong feelings about the issues and the candidates, and, quite rightly, we believe one aspect of Christian discipleship in America is following the political process closely and working and voting for the candidates we feel are best. Our right to elect our own leaders is a fearsome privilege for which our forebears died, and not to vote is irresponsible. But I have never felt that part of my responsibility is to publicly advocate a particular party or candidate.
