So, we went to the polls on Tuesday. Some of us went once to vote and came a second time to the church building to hand out cookies and juice to our neighbors who were filling out their ballots in the Chapel just across the hall. We voted and we volunteered. Some of us gathered here for Tuesday Evening Worship and we prayed for our country. Then we whipped out our phones and scrolled through the initial poll results. And we woke up on Wednesday morning with one big question on our minds:
IS DEMOCRACY DOOMED?
The results? Meh, Mixed. Reply Hazy, Try Again in 2020. We’ve been beat up so bad for the last two years, its hard sometimes not to think that the whole endeavor – democracy, liberalism, progressivism, voting, protesting, advocating and organizing, the very Realm of God itself – is maybe a lost cause.
