From on the Rector: The Rev. Steve Holt



On the Election 

On Tuesday night, after staying up to watch election results to come in, it was disappointing but not surprising that things were as uncertain then as they had been on Tuesday morning. In the midst of a pandemic, with a closely contested race, it is important that they are taking the time to ensure that every vote is counted, even as that continues to leave us in a space where we don’t know what’s next. The results will come.

 

In the meantime, on Wednesday morning, our team at the food pantry showed up. There were still people who needed to receive food, still, prayer requests that need to be shared, and perhaps even more than usual, still connections between us that needed to be made. In the midst of the uncertainty, our work at Church of the Guardian Angel continued.

The reality is that we have a long way to go to take care of the most vulnerable, to become a truly antiracist society, and to be in a community where we love all of our neighbors. Elections matter and the results of this one will certainly affect the lives of so many of our neighbors who have been told that they are not a part of our community, and so we should all keep praying for our country and watching the results. We should also remember that, regardless of who ends up being declared the winner of this election: our work continues.
