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