Golden Rule 2020: Add Your Name to Call for Dignity and Respect in Politics
November 3, 2019, marks one year before the national elections. Many churches are demonstrating their concern about the polarization in our country by being part of Golden Rule 2020. The ELCA signed a joint statement of support available at https://www.revivecivility.org/golden-rule-2020-call-dignit.
In part the statement says, “We believe that we can find guidance through this national dilemma in the teachings of Jesus. In particular, we believe that Jesus’ command to ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’ should be taken seriously by Christians who engage in political activity.”
All of us are encouraged to pray for the healing of divisions in our country and promote the application of the Golden Rule to political discussions, and are invited to sign a #ReviveCivility pledge. Learn more at www.revivecivility.org.
