  1. I am not concern at all. I will remain faithful no matter what! I will be glad when this election is over. If I have concerns it would be how carry out the greatest command. This elections(both sides) have been horrible. I think people need to remember that we must give an account of what we do while here on this temporary earth. That’s all! Bye!

  2. Election concerns: My call remains the same regardless of who is in the white house. Seemingly, there is a great need for preaching/teaching about honoring leaders and treating all people with respect.

  3. I will vote with a bit of anxiety about a couple of Propositions…but believe that God is in control, and that the church’s witness must be faithful, no matter what happens in an election. The maverick side of me almost likes the thought of the church’s increasing marginalization in society…because of the church’s history of growth and faithfulness through it’s times of persecution and marginalization. At the end of the day, it’s our job to preach Christ with word and deed…not the governments. So, whatever happens, happens. We must be faithful through it all.

  4. I have been teaching through the Gospel of Mark on Sunday mornings. We just finished looking at Ch 4 and the “seed” parables. In the parable of the sown seed, the seed choked out by the thorns is done so because of the worries and concerns about the world. I think it is natural for any of us to have a certain degree of concern over a number of issues in this world but we should also heed Jesus’ warning about what happens the seed (gospel) being cultivated in us when we become to concerned about the affairs of this world.
