When you became a member of Old Union Church, you made a commitment to
"participate in Christ's mission," as the Presbyterian constitution puts
it. It then goes on to describe what this involvement includes, and one
function it lists is "living responsibly in the personal, family,
vocational, *political*, cultural, and social relationships of life"
(emphasis added). In other words, voting is part of your duty as a church
member. Your citizenship, and the power to determine our nation's secular
leadership, is one of the gifts God has entrusted to you. Prayerfully seek
God's guidance, and vote as he leads you.
Rev. Peter C. de Vries, Ph.D.
Pastor, Old Union Presbyterian Church
