November 1 - Finally, this week the political campaigns that never ended, will be finished. The incessant ads and robocalls will stop. The pollution of lawn signs will stop. Hopefully, the irritability and argumentation will cease also. We deserve a time to heal. Let's all take a deep breath and give the opinions a break. It’s now time to pray for our country and to seek God's help in becoming a little more gentle...each of us, individually. "Lord make me an instrument of your peace." Let's not wait for the other guy to do it. As followers of Jesus, it should start with us. Moreover, I'm convinced that if we can lower the political temperature, it will make covid more bearable.
