So here it is folks…what you have been waiting for I’m sure…where does Pastor Martha lie on the upcoming election.  So, I am going to tell you how to vote….But wait, you are thinking, doesn’t that go against church and state stuff; haven’t we been told that religion and politics don’t mix.

Yes, you are all correct, so what I am going to tell you is HOW to vote, not WHO to vote for.  (I can’t take the credit for this idea though, as it came up in Bible Study a couple of weeks ago.)

I want to encourage you to definitely exercise your civic duty to go out on November 8th and vote.  But before you do that I encourage you to spend some time in prayer.  I encourage you to take some quiet time and put aside for a moment all the sound bites, all that is said on social media and just take some time to hear what God is calling of you to do.  From now until the election pray for our country, pray for all our leaders and for all those involved in the political process.  And let’s give thanks to God that we live in a place where we can vote.
