Statement from Rev. Dolberry, Chair of BCAMEC Christian Social Action Committee

 

We cannot stress the importance of our vote, our voice, especially in this upcoming midterm election. At the very core of our vote this year is democracy.  At the core of democracy is our right to choose.  Even God gives us the right to choose to accept or decline His grace of salvation. There are many nominees for offices across this nation, including Michigan,  who if elected, will overrule the people’s choice and declare the loser the winner. January 6th was just a dress rehearsal. It was nothing compared to what could happen if we lose our democracy. Roe V Wade was just the beginning of overturning the law of the land.  It will get worse. Please vote for those who uphold the virtues of democracy, justice, righteousness, peace, and love & compassion for the least of these. Please vote for those who have a heart to build instead of tear down. Of course, please pray that democracy will be the winner in this election. And when you get up off your knees, consider volunteering to promote the vote for democracy. Let’s choose to build a stronger democracy, stronger community, a stronger state and a stronger country, to the glory and honor of our God!
