Get Out The Vote (GOTV) was energetic and successful after church last Sunday. Steve produced names and addresses of hundreds of people who have a mixed record of coming out to vote. Hannah produced a comparable number of postcards. Nearly two dozen Memorialites put the addresses on about 850 cards. So if the press reports a surge in turnout this year, you know the source.
It was fun. It was productive in a very important election season. Many at the table are deeply involved in the election in a variety of ways. It's all part of Memorial's on-going commitment to connect personally to the quest for Justice. The next Justice event will be on October 28 at Linden Park as we gather to share fellowship and offer rides to early voting. Volunteers are still needed to help with both rides and fellowship. You may contact Hannah Hutchens for more information.
On November 5 at 6:30 pm we will hold an Election Eve prayer service. We hope all will come, pause in the midst of a very divisive campaign, finding peace in the Memorial community and pray for thoughtfulness as we vote and wisdom for those we elect.
