Participate in these weekly practices—for this election season and beyond—to help you connect with God and others as you seek to become a Kingdom Citizen.
Week 2: The Waters • Belonging
Acts 2:42-47. What practices characterized the baptized community that understood they belonged to Jesus?
Think about friends or neighbors who you know think or believe differently than you. As one who belongs to Jesus, spend time praying for them—for their well-being and that they would know Jesus.
To cultivate a community of belonging, rather than division or isolation, commit to these three practices when having conversations this week: 1. Ask a question 2. Pause before responding 3. Always include an affirmation or a kind word no matter what
WEEK 1: THE WORD • AUTHORITY
“The Stories Our Politicians Tell” from Christianity Today.
For further reflection: What story has most authority in your life?
Read Psalm 46 or Psalm 113 and thank God for the ways His power and authority are at work to bless the world and care for the needy.
Because we’re part of a story that shows we are not the ultimate authority, try using this phrase when having conversations (political or otherwise): “But I could be wrong” or “I can see your side” or “But there’s a lot of information I don’t have.”
