Rev. Jennifer Butler Op-Ed in RNS
Rev. Jennifer Butler wrote an op-ed in Religion News Service on the power of people of faith to keep the peace.
In every election year, pastors wrestle with how to address hot-button issues and political divisions within our congregations. This year, we have a more urgent duty: preventing violence targeting people regarded as political adversaries.
Political disagreement among Christians is as old as the church itself, and I don’t expect us all to agree on every issue. But whether we are liberal or conservative, the continuity of democracy and peaceful transfer of power is safer than the alternative. Together, we can save lives if we unite in keeping the peace on November 3rd and in the potential aftermath amid disputed results.Rev. Jennifer Butler in RNS. Read more here.
