As we approach Election Day, the best thing I know to do is be present. I’m trying not to get too ahead of myself with hopes or anxieties, though it’s absolute natural to feel contact with both. Instead, I’m going to try to be present to whatever need, feeling, or hope emerges. One thing at a time… We’re not likely to know election results fully tonight, though we’ll see.
Here’s a question I’ve been asking myself, and I’ll offer it here if it’s helpful:
What values are you committed to living, no matter the result?
Yesterday, I had the occasion to lead readings, reflections, and prayers in a virtual once-an-hour vigil with interfaith colleagues. I’ll share my video here if it’s helpful.
This format didn’t have captions, so if you’d like a transcript, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best to you,
