People in our community and around the country have already begun to vote. Voting is an important part of our civic duty and calls on us to consider the character and policies of all candidates. Be prayerful as you cast your ballot. Seek ways to come together rather than be pulled apart no matter your political persuasion. 246 years ago and six days, John Wesley wrote this in his journal. May it guide us still today.
“October 6, 1774
I met those of our society who had votes in the ensuing election, and advised them
1. To vote, without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy
2. To speak no evil of the person they voted against, and
3. To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.”
