Minute for Mission: Honest Patriotism for Christian Citizens

It is the beginning of November again, and that means that Election Day is around the corner. For some of us, that excites the passions, reminding us of our right to participate in the governance of our country. For others of us, whose confidence in our government has been damaged or who are suspicious of the role of government altogether, this time of year may not hold the same sense of promise and hope.

And increasingly our faith in, or our suspicion of, government, is a significant marker for where we stand along that spectrum.
