Silent Night [anti-politics]
This photo was taken almost a year ago to the day at St. Paul's Chapel near Ground Zero, NYC
“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
So the bracketed portion of the title of this post is really a misnomer...this post is not anti anything, it's simply the absence of. But I'm jumping ahead.
If you are like me--and I know there are plenty of us--you are likely tired and bored stiff of the inundation and nastiness on social media these past months regarding the presidential election. In revolt (that's a pretty strong word, but I suppose it's appropriate) I've made the personal vow to post only uplifting quotes and photos for the next week. But that's not what this post is about either.
What I wanted to highlight--or rather, promote--is a one-day movement that is happening across the country and was organized by two local Buffalo pastors:
There will be a few churches across the country opening the doors to their sanctuaries on election day to be just that...sanctuaries. Here's a description from their website:
"Silent Night is a time of quiet on election day. No phones. No politics. No noise. You can use the time to pray, reflect, rest, or heal."
Anyhow, here's a link to their website. There you can search for participating churches in your area.
Peace. Salaam. Shalom.
