Election Day Communion Aims to Heal the Partisan Breach
Come to me, all ye who are weary of negative political ads and burdened by the wounds of a brutal campaign season. I will give you rest.
That twist on the call of Jesus from the Gospel of Matthew is resonating this year as more than 400 local churches prepare for a new tradition: Election Day Communion. As voting winds down on Nov. 6, people of every political stripe will leave their respective partisan bunkers and line up side by side to receive the sacrament.
