Election Day Quiet Day

Date: Tuesday, November 8
Time: 7 am—5 pm
Location: Chapel

In all the excitement of a national election, with heated rhetoric and 15-minute news cycles, it can be easy to lose focus. It can be easy to get distracted and to lose perspective. Will the world end on November 8 if one person or another wins (loses) an election? Or will Jesus still be Lord and the universe still a perfectly safe place to be?

At Epiphany we’re rather inclined to the latter opinion. To help remind ourselves of this fact, and to pray for the well-being of our nation, we are setting aside the chapel for prayer and meditation all day on election day. We will open at 7 am for silent prayer. Pieter Drummond will lead a meditation at 7:45 am in the church, followed by a short Eucharist service at 8:30 am. The labyrinth will be available all day, beginning at 9 am.

We are blessed to live in a country where we can choose our own leaders: the fact that our decision process is raucous only points to the strength of our system. We are blessed to live in a country where we can assemble and worship as we see fit. Join us as we pray for our leaders, our country, our own work as citizens, and our whole community of nations.
