What do Election Day and the Festival of All Saints have to do with one another? Well, maybe more than you think. Voting is a responsibility people of faith bear as a result of the vocation of “citizen.” In addition, our faith calls us to vote on behalf of those in need instead of our self-interest. Faith lets us be free of the fear that is used to persuade us and it reminds us that no matter who we elect, Christ is Lord of all things. Saints of every age have stood up to and against the powers that be to bring not a party agenda, but the reign of God. Saints do this whenever they are signs of God’s gracious love to one another and the world. This sermon helps put the election in perspective.
