Encouraging Faith Communities to Vote – Sermons on the Importance of Voting
August 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Faith leaders understand the importance of using their prophetic voices to call the faithful to live by their most deeply-held values. In an election year, voting is one way that we can bring forth a world rooted in those values–values of justice, hope, courage, and love for all of God’s Creation, our Sacred Earth. But to do this, we need to make sure that people of faith are voting. That starts with our congregations.
We invite you to join IPL President Rev. Susan Hendershot; IPL Board Chair Rev. Dr. Gerald L. Durley; IPL Board member Rabbi Fred Scherlinder Dobb; and Islamic Organization of North America Imam and President Mustapha Elturk for a discussion about encouraging our faith communities to vote by offering sermons, divrei Torah, and khutbahs on the importance of voting. We’ll also share nonpartisan resources to help you in developing these messages to encourage the members of your faith community to vote.
