Election Day

Are you voting today? I'm preparing to leave for my local precinct polling place right now.

As Americans, we have the privilege of choosing our leaders.

Every American should exercise their franchise.

When you vote (whether it be for President or City Commissioner) I pray that your vote will not be based on partisan affiliations, special interest groups' endorsements, slogans, personalities, economics, and empty rhetoric - but upon your values and convictions.

Those of us who are Christ Followers, must be careful not to leave our Biblical world view outside the voting booth. I will not presume to tell you for whom to vote... but I do urge you to know the candidates and their platforms. Evaluate where they stand in regard to your innermost convictions, and cast your vote accordingly.

On the other hand, if you don't know the candidates, or where they really stand on the issues that are important to you, then for God's sake DON'T VOTE!
