I saw this thing about 'Election Day Communion' the other day, and I think it is simply brilliant. I can't believe no one has thought of doing something like this until now (unless, of course, they have; and I just didn't know about it. In which case I can't believe I haven't heard about it until now).
The idea is that some people will vote for this candidate, some for that, some will choose not to vote at all... but as Christians, can we come together at the end of election day and choose to remember something different. And this is what they ask us to choose:
As they say, "One of the goals of the Election Day Communion Campaign is to build unity in Christ despite theological, political, and denominational differences."
I like this. A lot. I'm pretty sure we will be doing it at our church. Since our church building is also used as a polling place, I'm hoping some people will see the signs and want to join us. Good on these folks for thinking of this. Check it out at: http://electiondaycommunion.org/
