Marlene Bagnull is the director of the Colorado Christian Writers Conference and the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference. Below is the body of a letter from her that I received in today’s mail.
I just read op-eds on CNN written by Romney and Obama about their vision for the future. Both, of course, are focused on the economy. I too am concerned about the economy. It’s certainly impacted us as a family. Our son was out of work for almost a year. Praise God he’s working again but in South Carolina instead of Delaware. I hate having him and our daughter-in-law 13 hours away. Our old house was on the market for more than two years before it finally sold at close to half of our original asking price.
But as much as I’m concerned about the economy and the national debt that puts us in such a precarious position, I’m even more concerned about biblical issues that cannot be ignored. The powerful ad the Catholic church produced has been redone with Mike Huckabee narrating. I hope you’ll watch it and pass the URL on – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eV0OipvkZE.
Focus on the Family Citizen Link says “it is absolutely critical that we all understand where our candidates stand on the issues that matter to us. See CitizenLinkVoter.com for information on candidates in your state.
Dr. Billy Graham says in a full page ad in many newspapers, “I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel.”
Franklin Graham says, “This Could Be America’s Last Chance” in his October 22 letter.
In a stirring and challenging message Dr. David Jeremiah also urges everyone to “Vote Your Values.”
Father, You know we’ve been inundated with TV ads, emails, phone calls . . . But please, save us from complacency. The issues are important not just to our nation’s future, but to You. Help us not take for granted our freedom to choose our leaders or to believe the lie that our one vote doesn’t matter. Please draw our nation back to You.
In Him –
To which I will add my AMEN.
