As we all know in a democracy, voting rights are fundamental to the dignity of every citizen, and the free practice of that right is necessary for the establishment of justice.
And as Episcopalians, we have an obligation through our Baptismal Covenant to “strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being."
It is with this in mind that Church of the Redeemer’s Becoming Beloved Community Action Team, part of our Mission Ministry, offers information this fall to help get souls to the polls.
“Cast your vote, not on a partisan basis, not based on your biases, but vote your values. Vote the values of human dignity and equality. Vote the values of the rock on which this country was built. Vote." -Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
Getting souls to the polls isn’t just about casting our own vote, but about working together so we all can vote and vote faithfully.
