Two weeks from today, our state and nation will be voting on important government positions that will dramatically effect the direction of our nation.
Obviously, this year's mid-term elections are extremely important. Voters will be asked to decide if they want to continue with a big spending, freedom-eroding agenda, or do they want a government that stops the out-of-control spending and promotes our shared values. We cannot take our God-given civic responsibility and blessing of self-government lightly.
As citizens, we have been given the awesome privilege and responsibility to select those who make our laws and govern our nation. I believe the Lord will hold us accountable for how we steward the gift of republican democracy. Illinois has several competitive races this year. Your vote can make a difference. The Church has a wonderful opportunity to be salt and light for a state and nation in rapid decay.
To help encourage the body of Christ, we have created a bulletin insert. Ask your pastor and/or church elders for permission to place these inserts in the bulletin or a strategic spot in your church to help us get this information to the good folks in your church.
