Post Election Pastoral Letter from Seattle Presbytery

Seattle Presbytery

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,
 
Regardless of where you may stand politically, this past Tuesday’s election brought an avalanche of emotions for all.
Sadly, the season’s political rhetoric was laced with such anger and hateful talk, there are many in our congregations who are angry and grieving; others still who are worried about an uncertain future for their loved ones or themselves.
 
It is also important to note how tragically divided our country is at this time, and how fear has given permission for some to bully or oppress others.
 
Now more than ever we must recommit ourselves to the values and teachings of the Gospel. Now more than ever we need to publicly voice our commitment to love, justice and peace for all of God’s children.
 
Let us pray for our president-elect and our country, but let us also refuse to turn a blind eye to racism, xenophobia and sexism.
Let us be the communities of faith that stand with the vulnerable, speak out against oppression and bigotry, and offer the hope that comes from claiming Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.

In grace and peace,

Scott Lumsden & Eliana Maxim
