Eat, Pray, Vote

The signs are all over the place. The ads are flying. Tomorrow’s the big day. Are you voting? My bishop made a video urging people to vote (You can see it at He says it’s part of our Christian responsibility, and that regardless of how we vote, we should seek “good governance for all God’s people.”

Do you have a sign in your yard? What’s at stake in Watertown or beyond? Do you think of voting as a spiritual practice? (And while I’m asking questions: Until I moved to Boston, I’d never seen people standing on street corners holding out signs for political candidates as cars zoomed by. Not done in the midwest. Where/when does this practice come from & is it *really* effective?)

About amymccreath

I'm a pastor and mother who loves to make connections between people, between ideas, and between stuff we label "sacred" and "secular." I aspire to be like a Cedar of Lebanon in the midst of the changes and chances of life, but like most folks, generally find that I can really only navigate the tumult hand in hand with others. Good coffee helps, too.
