Election Day

More than 50 % of North Carolina has cast ballots with 3 days left of early  voting | WLOS

Everyone I know is on edge today. Much is at stake in our national election. In the midst of this tense time of decision, calm is fleeting. I believe that we should speak and act and vote with all the passion for good we can.

But maybe we can pause from time to time, breathe deeply, and remind ourselves that love endures. Voices calling for justice and integrity will not disappear no matter what happens. God’s spirit is abroad.

The words of Psalm 46 were written in the context of intense conflict and political turmoil. From that moment came the call: “Be still and know that I am God.” (v.10a)

Breathe. Hear that call.
