Vigil for a Peaceful Election

The Episcopal Bishops in Massachusetts are calling for a vigil of intense prayer from noon on All Saints Sunday, Nov. 6, through noon on Election Day, Tues., Nov. 8. They write,

We must pray that God be at work in our electoral process. We must pray for a peaceful transition, no matter the outcome of our elections. We must pray that the demonization of one another’s opponents which has characterized this election not be further stoked by its outcome. We must pray that all those elected on that day be moved, strengthened and guided by the Spirit, to lead us through fractious and dangerous times. We must pray in gratitude for those who, with sacrifice of self and noble intent, step up to lead our common life.

On Mon., Nov. 7, attend St. John’s Church, Arlington, for a prayer vigil from 5-6:30 p.m. Or, join Pastor Brian Emmet from the Arlington Clergy group for silent prayer from 7-9 p.m. at Covenant Church, 9 Westminster Ave., Arlington.
