Over the last month, we have been tackling a difficult conversation about how the church leads a grace-filled way in a highly partisan political world that dominates our community, newsfeed, and discussions.
We have not endorsed certain politicians, insinuated who you should vote for, nor discussed partisan issues. Instead, we examined Jesus’ call for his followers to move past toting party lines and blindly giving loyalty to a political figure to give way to living out a way of peace, justice, mercy, kindness, civility, homogeny, and love no matter the cost.
The election cycle has come and gone. Your candidate either won or lost. But, what we must see is that last week's results do not change a simple and unwavering fact, Jesus remains King.
Did you know that elections come and go, Jesus remains King?
Whoever becomes President, Jesus remains King.
Whoever is elected to the House or the Senate, Jesus remains King.
Whoever is elected Governor of the State of Louisiana, Jesus remains King.
Whoever is appointed Mayor of Baton Rouge, Jesus remains King.
