Election Day Communion

Election Day Communion

An election day idea for churches from the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut e-newsletter:

372798_371935272879369_256372891_n.jpgHere’s a suggestion for Election Day 2012 (thx to a tip from the Rev. Molly James): The Election Day Communion Campaign. In the evening, after the nation votes, join with other churches across the country in celebrating Communion and remembering “what really matters.” From its website: “The Election Day Communion Campaign began with a concern that Christians in the United States are being shaped more by the tactics and ideologies of political parties than by their identity in and allegiance to Jesus. Out of this concern, a simple vision sparked the imaginations of several Mennonite pastors: The Church being the Church on Election Day, gathering at the Lord’s Table to remember, to practice, to give thanks for, and to proclaim its allegiance to Christ.”

Since my parish already has a daily Mass. Since I strongly feel that (once more) I’ll be voting for the lesser of two evils on Election Day, I will instead lobby my rector to hold a different service that evening. I wonder if I can find an online version of the 1662 BCP’s Commination Service…?

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
