Election Vigil at All Saints’ Church

From the Rector–
      On Tuesday our nation goes through the trauma of a presidential election. This election season has revealed a deepening split in our country and it seems we are no longer able to discuss our differences without slipping into an adolescent reactivity of name-calling. Because of this inability to be civil to one another, stress and anxiety are on the rise as are visits to therapists and clergy for help.
       Therefore, I support our Bishops in their call for the Church to participate in a Nov. 6-8 pre-election prayer vigil. At All Saints we will offer special prayers at the end of our services on All Saints Sunday, November 6. We will pray that we may be given the grace to be witnesses for God’s Kingdom by manifesting Jesus’ love for all people.
      The chapel will also be open for prayer and meditation on the Monday, from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM and on election day from 8:30 to 5:00 PM.
       “Almighty God, to whom we must account for all our powers and privileges: Guide the people of the United States and of this community in the election of officials and representatives; that, by faithful administration and wise laws, the rights of all may be protected and our nation be enabled to fulfill your purposes; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
Prayer for an Election, from the 1979 Episcopal Book of Common Prayer.
Peace in Christ,

Pre-Election Vigil at All Saints

From the Rector–

This election season has highlighted a deepening split in our country and it seems we are no longer able even to discuss our differences without slipping into an adolescent reactivity of name calling. Because of this inability to be civil to one another stress and anxiety are on the rise as are visits to therapists and clergy for help. The fear now is that after the election this incivility will grow and may even lead to violence. Therefore, I support our Bishops in their call for the Church to participate in a Nov. 6-8 pre-election prayer vigil.
