Vote Common Good Rally – Omaha NE
October 13, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On the Vote Common Good tour, our team of authors, speakers and pastors will be visiting towns across the country, setting up a revival rallies and inviting folks to join us in making the following commitments:
1. We will vote in the 2018 midterm elections – not merely for personal, group, or party interests, but for the common good. We are all part of something larger than our own lives.
2. We will vote with the poor, vulnerable, and forgotten in mind, with religious, racial, and gender minorities, with children and the elderly, with the sick and diversely-abled, upholding the God-given dignity of all people, no exceptions.
3. We will vote with peace and safety in mind, and we will oppose policies and politicians who believe that more weapons and more threats of war will bring peace.
4. We will vote with God’s creation (The Planet) in mind – the oceans, rivers, and streams; the mountains, valleys, and farmland; the atmosphere, the delicate balance of nature, and our fellow creatures.
5. We will vote against policies and politicians who promise special privileges for any religion, including our own.
6. We will vote for politicians who support laws against the corrupting influence of corporate and special interest group donations on our political system.
Many of us are disturbed and perplexed by the current political landscape, and the tensions can leave us feeling paralyzed. But there is something we can do. We can invite charitable conversations about our highest ideals, which Jesus called the kingdom of God, the Creator’s unfolding dreams for all of creation. We hope you’ll join us!
