Beloved in Christ,

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that we have an election coming up next week. In my memory, I cannot remember such a contentious election. I remembered feeling the tension in 2016, but it seems like this has been amped up in the last four years.
 
It has always been my rule as a presbyter in the Anglican church to keep my voting preferences and political opinions to myself. In our church, I know we have a range of views and thoughts on how this election should turn out. So, I do want to share a few general thoughts on being a Christian in this season.
 
As Christians, Jesus tells us that the peacemakers are blessed, and our country is currently in a time of severe disunity. We are not called to stir up that divisiveness but to seek peace with our neighbors. I am confident that we, as a church, can rise to that challenge.
 
At the polls and after
 
By now, I realize that most of us have voted by mail or dropped our ballots off at a ballot box, but it is still good to be aware of how we present ourselves. I came across this section from the Anglican Priest and founder of Methodism John Wesley. In 1774, he wrote the following in his journal:
 
“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.”
 
This advice still stands true today – vote for the person who seems most worthy to you, speak no evil of others, and guard your spirit against reviling those with whom you disagree with.
 
Pray
 
I invite everyone to be in fervent prayer, but specific prayer. Pray that there would be a revival in our community and country. One of the best thoughts on this that I’ve read stated – pray with a fervor that God would start a revival in your church but ask him to start within yourself and keep asking him this.
 
It may seem odd to us that we would start praying for revival within ourselves – we already know Jesus, after all. I have found that the fire has grown cold in parts of my heart more often than I would care to admit. Other times, I have let sin seep in and reside, and the Holy Spirit has to reach deep into my heart to pull out the roots and tend to the wounds that letting go of that sin leaves.
 
An earnest prayer for self-revival is never wasted.
 
Remember that Christ is king
 
As Christians, we are citizens in another country, and our king is never up for election and cannot be displaced. Remember this; Christ is our Lord and King – he has reigned through wars, famines, terror, plagues, and pestilence. He has never stepped away from his children but always walks with them. No matter how deeply the foundations of the world may shake – Christ reigns eternal.
 
One Christian commentator noted that come Wednesday morning half our country will be devastated and shocked by the election results. He, nor I, would dare to guess which side that will be, but as Christians, we have an advantage – no matter what happens on Tuesday, and no matter what follows – we know that we serve Christ the King, the Lord of lords, and the King of kings.
 
He has reigned, he does reign, and he will reign for all of eternity.
 
No matter what – worship God  
 
Someone asked a friend in 2016 – what will you do if our guy loses? He responded along these lines:
 
I will get up, repent of my sins, give thanks to God for all his has done, and worship Christ.
 
I invite you each to adopt this attitude. Just as Christ is king forever and ever, God’s sovereignty does not change no matter what happens next week. We still serve a good king – and so let us set our mind on this task. Resolve today that when you wake up Wednesday morning, no matter what your reactions are to the results – to repent of your sins, give thanks to God for all he has done, pray for His wisdom and guidance, and continue to worship Christ, our savior.
 
Beloved, stay warm, and remember the Lord is in His Holy temple. 
 
I look forward to seeing all of you on Sunday.
 
In Christ,
 
Fr. Ian
