The good folks over at Faith in Public Life crunched the numbers last night and they show a significant shift in America's religious landscape and its voting patterns.

This I Vote: An Election Day Prayer


An election day prayer from Rabbi David Seidenberg, a Conservative and Renewal leader of the NeoHasid.

With my vote today I am prepared and intending to seek peace for this country, as it is written:

Seek out the peace of the city where I cause you to roam
and pray for her sake to God YHVH, for in her peace you all will have peace. (Jer. 29:7)

May it be Your will that votes will be counted faithfully and may You account my vote as if I had fulfilled this verse with all my power.

Happy Reformation Day: Read the 95 Theses



OCTOBER 31, 1517

Out of love for the truth and the desire to bring it to light, the following propositions will be discussed at Wittenberg, under the presidency of the Reverend Father Martin Luther, Master of Arts and of Sacred Theology, and Lecturer in Ordinary on the same at that place.
