Spreading the word

Election Day Communion is a movement from the church, for the church…which is a convoluted way of saying we need your help to spread the word.

If you’re hosting an Election Day Communion service at your church, you may want to reach out to let your local media know about it. Feel free to use our press release (docx format) as a template for creating your own. Download

You’re also welcome to use any of the images we’ve created to spread the word on your own website or Facebook page. Visit our images page

You can also download this flyer, created by one of our participating churches, to customize for your own use. Download

Additional resources

Below are resources and ideas you may find helpful.

Worship ideas

  • Hold a joint Election Day Communion service with other congregations (including those of other denominations). What better way to celebrate our unity in Christ!
  • Make “campaign” signs (e.g., “Kingdom First”, “Jesus is Lord”, “Change You Can Believe In”, “Choose Wisely, Remember Rightly”) and place them in your congregation’s front yard in the weeks before the election.  Include, also, an invitation to communion among the signs. (This is a great activity for youth groups.)
  • Make stickers for people to wear on Election Day or for distribution during the worship service (e.g. “My Vote Ends at the Table”, “A Choice to Remember”, or a relevant verse).
  • Plan worship services and offer communion in public places at specific times during the day. Worship services could even be planned in places convenient to polling stations. Be sure to consult and follow any relevant election laws.
  • During your service, point out both the similarities and differences between our “election” of Jesus as Lord and how we vote for a candidate as president (e.g., our “vote” for Christ is a public confession, not a private ritual meant to be kept confidential; we vote with our lives every day of the week, not just at specific times and places).

    If you’re interested, here’s the little writeup I posted on my blog for our church today, as a way to whet their appetites and start some early promotion for this communion service. I’m doing all I can to get the word out there as I think this is a tremendous act of worship and witness. Thank you guys for leading this effort!

  6. Friends,
    I offer the following as a resource for the communion event/website.

    When I first heard of the call to celebrate communion on election day, and ever since, I was intrigued by the idea. In one way it seemed very right, and in another seriously questionable. It seemed right because followers of Jesus are certainly right when they remember and celebrate the self-giving love of their Lord and affirm their commitment to him. But questionable if it would be either deliberately or inadvertently a depoliticization and individualization of Jesus’ message and mission, or a retreat into vague spirituality instead of engagement with the world where the cross is not a piece of wood on a wall but the instrument of state threat and execution.

    I reflected on Jesus’ announcement of his mission: :The time is fulfilled, the reign/kingship of God is at hand, repent and believe the good news” (Mark 1:15). Here Jesus put politics at the center of his message, speaking of kingship (which today would be something like presidency, wouldn’t it?) A totally public and global assertion. He taught his disciples: “Seek first the kingship of God and it’s justice” (Matt. 6:33) and instructed them to pray “Thy kingship come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt. 6:10). Then when he ate that last supper with his disciples he told them to “do this in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19).

    But who is this “me” who is remembered? John the Revelator called him “the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead and the ruler of kings on earth” (Rev. 1:5). The one executed for telling the truth in and about empire, raised from the dead by God in vindication of his faithful witness, and enthroned as ruler of the kings of the earth. That’s who we remember and announce to the world when we observe communion/eucharist. And the Revelation says that we share, in our communion with this Jesus “the persecution and the kingship and the patient endurance (relentless persistence)” (Rev. 1:9). So this act of communion is saturated with public and political meaning, even asserting that we share both persecution and political sovereignty (kingship/presidency) with Jesus.

    I also thought back on things I’ve read about the meaning of communion, Lord’s Supper, or Eucharist. One sermon came irresistibly to mind, a mediation by Father Emmanuel Charles McCarthy of the Eastern Rite Catholic tradition. It is titled “The Nonviolent Eucharistic Jesus: A Pastoral Approach.” It can be read online here–http://centerforchristiannonviolence.org/data/Media/NV_Eucharist_PastoralApproach_01d.pdf

    I suggest that it could be read whole or in part at our communion services. This will help, I believe, to give flesh to our words, to incarnate in real time and space our commendable spiritual intentions.

    A spot to grab the logos in various sizes and without the gray or white box around it would be helpful!
    It’s always nice to have high-quality logo images directly from the source instead of from Google images or Facebook.

    Via David Winfrey: “Here’s a Wesley quote you may be able to use; it’s from his journal in 1774:

    “I met those of our society who had votes in the ensuing election, and advised them, 1. To vote, without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy: 2. To speak no evil of the person they voted against: And, 3. To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.”
    — John Wesley, October 6, 1774

  9. I second what has been said above by Church Admin. We would like to use the election day communion logo for our web site and yard signs. Is there any way to get those emailed in a pdf or jpeg file?

    What Brings Us Together: An Election Day Meditation
    October 23, 2012
    Pastor Tim Schultz, Aurora Mennonite Church

    Today is a great day! Not just because it is Election Day, but because of the fact that you can wake up tomorrow morning and be free of TV campaign ads that make us angry one moment, joyful the next, contributing to a jarring effect on our souls.

    Some of us here, and Christians elsewhere, may find it almost impossible to conceive of the reality that their fellow-Christian church members voted for someone other than who they voted for. I mean, how could one possibly vote for a candidate who is pro-choice? How could someone vote for a candidate who is in favor of increasing the vast military complex? How could anyone vote for a candidate wanting to raise taxes? And how does a Christian justify voting for the candidate who is in favor of the death penalty, or the candidate with a high rating from the women’s organizations? We each, in our own way ask, “How could they do it?” How could one even call themselves a Christian and be a Democrat….or a Republican?

    I was reading in a book by Jim Wallis in which he shared a couple political jokes. Let me share them with you:

    “Two senators—one a Republican and the other a Democrat—were eating together in the Senate Dining Room. The Republican senator said, ‘You Democrats know nothing about religion!’ ‘That’s not true,’ insisted the Democratic senator. “We know a lot about religion.’ So the Republican issued a challenge, ‘I’ll bet you twenty bucks you can’t recite the Lord’s Prayer!’ The Democrat said it was easy, and began, ‘Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.’ The Republican then reached for his wallet and replied, ‘Darn, I didn’t think you could do it.’”

    The other joke goes like this:

    “A man was drowning in the Potomac River, about a hundred feet offshore. The Republicans ran down to the river, saw his predicament, threw him fifty feet of rope, and yelled out to him, ‘The rest is up to you.’ The Democrats then heard about the drowning man and the Republican’s failure to rescue him. When they reached the riverbank, they saw that the poor guy was about to go under, still about a hundred feet offshore. So the Democrats threw him two hundred feet of rope—and let go of their end.”

    There will always be differences of political opinions. One of the great surprises in life is when a person changes their political party or ideology. That happens sometimes, even with high-profile politicians. To think that Hillary Clinton was once a young Republican, or that Billy Graham was affiliated Democrat earlier in his life. Wow! People change their positions because they grow and mature in their thinking. Change is not necessarily a weakness. Change can be a strong attribute in a person’s character. So we need understanding about how life has caused some to change their positions. An experience or an encounter made them see something in a new light. Yet, as they changed, others stayed the same, and remaining steadfast in one’s positions is also to be admired.

    We need to return in this county to a more civil approach to differing opinions, back to the days of Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neil being buddies. In our churches too, for that matter. Yes, we can argue and debate, and disagree with passion. But as followers of Jesus, at the end of the day we should be able to sit down and have a meal together. I mean, don’t families do that? You get into these arguments and even say things that irritate each other, but you don’t isolate yourselves from each other at the end of the day. You agree to disagree. This is especially how it is supposed to be among followers of Jesus Christ.

    Talking about a meal, we are gathered here this evening around a table. In his last days, Jesus gathered a disparate group of men together, guys who had argued and who came from different backgrounds. He got them to the table in a difficult time of life and they didn’t talk about their differences there that day, with the exception of Judas, who had succumbed to religious and political frenzy surrounding the death of Jesus. No, the disciples gathered together about the one thing they were all in agreement about, the one person they not only supported, but who they would later lay down their lives for. They sat at the table with the one who rejected political power and retaliation. And in that moment they all shared in the life of a kingdom and reign they only comprehended in a hazy way. Somehow they knew that this way of Jesus was the right way.

    The reason we come to this church each week is not because we all like vanilla ice cream or vote in the exact same way. We gather, each of us: rich and poor, white and black, Republican or Democrat, or Independent, because we agree about the person who is the center of our gathering. We have found freedom and life in Jesus Christ, individually, and together. If it wasn’t for Jesus, and what he has done for us and means to us, we likely would not spend time together, with all our differences.

    It is not only on Sundays that we are to remember who we truly are. It is even during a contentious election season that we acknowledge our differences, but at the end of the day gather at the table of Jesus, and see in each other a brother or a sister. That is why we are sharing in this Election Day communion this evening. We will soon be taking down our political signs and nearly forgetting this election. But the faith that has caused us to come together in unity for generations will remain. We are Christ-followers first. Political affiliations fall far behind our essential identity as believers in the one who prayed to his Father, “That they may be one as we are one.”

    Tonight some of us will be really disappointed and others will be full of joy as we discover who won this election. May those of us who are sad, not judge those who are happy. May those of us who are happy not gloat in our happiness, but be sober about the limitations of government.

    Week after week, or month after month, following this election—and there will be many other elections to come—we will gather around the Lord’s table to express our allegiance to Christ. Only Jesus can bring about the true hope and change that we all long for. Only Jesus can give us what our hearts yearn for. May his kingdom be the rule that we long for, even more than any political promise this world offers. Amen.

  14. In addition to the scriptures and prayer Eric Funston offers above, I’d suggest looking the “Prayers and Thanksgivings” section of the Book of Common Prayer. It can be found at http://bcponline.org/

    Here’s a whole service — maybe more than you want!

    Order of Prayers

    Statement of Purpose
    On this day we come together to bear witness.
    We may be Republican or Democrat,
    Libertarian or Independent,
    politically astute or politically naive.
    But we all enjoy the benefits of living in these United States of America.
    We have been entrusted with freedoms that few other nations enjoy.
    We share responsibility for guarding those freedoms as a precious inheritance.
    Here in the church we gather as followers of Jesus Christ.
    We may come from any of a number of denominations,
    but we all claim one Savior and Lord.
    On this day, we put our divisions aside,
    and we gather to bear witness to our unity in Christ,
    and to renew our common commitment to liberty and to justice,
    with malice toward none and charity toward all.

    Hymn O Beautiful for Spacious Skies
    O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain;
    For purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain!
    America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
    And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea.
    O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife,
    Who more than self their country loved, and mercy more than life!
    America! America! May God thy gold refine,
    Till all success be nobleness, and every gain divine.
    O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years
    Thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears!
    America! America! God mend thine every flaw,
    Confirm thy soul in self control, thy liberty in law.
    Prayer of Confession
    Lord, we confess to you
    that we have shared in the culture of division.
    We have believed that those who don’t think the way we do
    were less committed to the dream of a better nation for all.
    We have forgotten the sacrifices made by men and women
    who have given their lives to secure our freedoms.
    We have been quick to anger, and speedy to judge;
    slow to come to reason and unwilling to seek understanding.
    Forgive our divisiveness, Lord,
    and show us how to be reconciled to our fellow citizens
    for the sake of becoming a community that does your will on earth
    as it is even now being done in heaven.

    Declaration of Forgiveness
    Once when some men brought to Jesus a woman who had been caught in adultery and wanted to stone her to death, he challenged those men: “Let the one who is without sin cast the first stone.” After everyone had left, Jesus turned to the woman and said, “Neither do I condemn you.” God did not sent his son into the world to condemn, but to save: In Christ, your sins are completely forgiven. Believe this good news and be at peace.

    Call to Freedom
    The story continues: Jesus said, “Go now and sin no more.” This is the way of freedom for us — not to do whatever we please, but to live according to God’s design for humanity. As God’s beloved, put on compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another. If one of you has a complaint against another, forgive each other, as the Lord has forgiven you. Above all else, put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony, and let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which you were called in the one body.

    Scripture Reading Matthew 5: 13-16
    13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
    14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

    Meditation (from the sermon of John Witherspoon)

    Now the only way to . . . provide for our posterity, is to follow the counsel of Micah, to do justly, to love mercy, to walk humbly with our God. For this end, we must be knit together, in this work, as one man. We must entertain each other in brotherly affection. We must be willing to abridge ourselves of our superfluities, for the supply of others’ necessities. We must uphold a familiar commerce together in all meekness, gentleness, patience and liberality. We must delight in each other; make others’ conditions our own; rejoice together, mourn together, labor and suffer together, always having before our eyes our commission and community in the work, as members of the same body. So shall we keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace. The Lord will be our God, and delight to dwell among us, as His own people, and will command a blessing upon us in all our ways, so that we shall see much more of His wisdom, power, goodness and truth, than formerly we have been acquainted with. We shall find that the God of Israel is among us, when ten of us shall be able to resist a thousand of our enemies; when He shall make us a praise and glory that men shall say of succeeding plantations, “may the Lord make it like that of New England.” For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us. So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a by-word through the world. . . . And to shut this discourse with that exhortation of Moses, that faithful servant of the Lord, in his last farewell to Israel, Deut. 30. “Beloved, there is now set before us life and death, good and evil,” . . . . Therefore let us choose life, that we and our seed may live, by obeying [God's] voice and cleaving to Him, for He is our life and our prosperity.

    Hymn God Bless Our Native Land

    God bless our native land; firm may she ever stand through storm and night;
    when the wild tempests rave, ruler of wind and wave,
    do thou our country save by thy great might.

    Of many a race and birth from utmost ends of earth, God save us all!
    Bid strife and hatred cease, bid hope and joy increase,
    spread universal peace: God save us all!

    Lord’s Supper

    The Lord be with you
    And also with you
    Lift up your hearts
    We lift them up to God
    Let us give thanks to God
    It is right to give both thanks and praise.
    We are gathered in communion as God’s church
    A house of prayer for all who seek God
    A home to all who come to Christ
    Welcome to this place of unity
    Friend and stranger, saint and sinner
    All who gather here
    Come with hope or hesitation
    Come with joy or yearning
    All who hunger, all who thirst
    For life in all its fullness
    Generous God and generous Saviour
    Touch us through your Spirit.

    We gather in God’s name
    We claim Christ’s promised presence
    Not out of dread or fear
    But believing that God is faithful to forgive
    Let us lay at his altar the sin
    that we no longer need to carry
    (silence)
    Let us pray, Holy God
    Holy and mighty
    Holy and immortal
    Have mercy on us
    Hear now the words of Jesus,
    That all who confess their sins
    And who seek to renew their lives in Christ
    Are forgiven and invited into the life of the Spirit
    Lead us now O God
    As we acknowledge your gift of grace
    And live our lives as forgiven people
    Heaven and earth rejoice
    And the whole earth cries Glory
    Through Christ our Lord

    Let us proclaim our faith.
    We believe in God above us
    Maker and sustainer of all life
    Of sun and moon, Of water and earth
    Of male and female.
    We believe in God beside us,
    Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh,
    Born of a woman, a servant of the poor,
    Nailed to a tree.
    A man of sorrows, he died forsaken.
    He descended to the place of death and,
    On the third day he rose from the tomb.
    He ascended into heaven, to be present everywhere
    And his kingdom will come on earth
    We believe in God within us
    The Holy Spirit of Pentecostal fire,
    Life-giving breath of the Church,
    Spirit of healing and forgiveness,
    Source of resurrection and of eternal life,
    Amen.

    We who live by sound and symbol, let us offer our gifts
    Loving God, through your goodness
    We have this bread and wine to offer
    Which earth has given, and human hands have made.
    May we know your Presence
    In the sharing of this bread
    So that we may know your same touch
    In all of our lives

    We celebrate the life that Jesus has shared
    Among his community through the centuries,
    And shares with us now.
    Made one with Christ
    And one with each other,
    We offer these gifts and with them, ourselves
    As a single, holy and living sacrifice
    Amen

    Wheat from many fields comes together in this bread. Grapes from many hills have been pressed into this cup. So may we come together in deep communion with Christ and with one another, on this very night bearing witness to the world that God is God, that Jesus is our Lord, that the powers of evil have already been defeated, and that God’s new world has already begun.

    Let us greet one another, saying “the peace of Christ be with you.”

    These, God’s gifts, are for you, God’s beloved people. Let us share them in peace.

    Prayers
    Almighty God, you are the source of wisdom and justice. Guide those who on this day are being elected to serve in the villages, statehouses, and in the legislative and executive branches of our federal government. Guide all those who have yet to vote with a true sense of their responsibility. Lead us all in the spirit of wisdom and understanding, that those whom we entrust with the mantle of servanthood might provide conditions for a good and honest life for all the citizens of this good land.

    In you alone, almighty God, we find safety and peace. We commend to your gracious keeping all the men and women who serve in the Navy, the Army, the Air Force, the Marines, and the Coast Guard, who face danger and put their lives at risk so that others might live in safety. Defend them day by day by your heavenly power; and help them to know that they can never pass beyond the reach of your care. Keep alive in them and in us your vision of that peace which alone we must seek and serve.

    We thank you, O God, for calling us into the company of those who trust in Christ your son and seek to obey his will. You have made us strangers no longer but pilgrims together on the way to your kingdom. Guide us closer to you and to one another in the unity of the Spirit and the bond of peace. Strengthen us together in mission and service to your world.

    God of righteousness, hear our prayers for the life of our country. Bless all those in positions of authority. Bless all peoples; rule our hearts and encourage our endeavors for good. Help us to seek service before privilege, public prosperity before private gain, and the honor of your name before the popularity of our own. Give us liberty, peace, and joy, and bind us in service to the community and in loyalty to you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, in whose name we are bold to pray;

    Our Father &c.,

    Hymn God the Omnipotent
    God, the omnipotent! King Who ordainest thunder thy clarions, the lightning Thy sword;
    Show forth Thy pity on high where Thou reignest, Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.
    God the all-provident, earth by thy chastening yet shall to freedom and truth be restored;
    Through the thick darkness Thy kingdom is hastening; Thou wilt give peace in Thy time, O Lord.
    So shall Thy children, with thankful devotion, Praise God who saved them from peril and sword,
    Singing in chorus from ocean to ocean: “Peace to the nations, and praise to the Lord!”
    May the everlasting God shield you
    East and west, wherever you go
    And the blessing of God be upon you
    The blessing of the God of all life
    The blessing of Christ be upon you
    The blessing of the Christ of all love
    The blessing of the Spirit be upon you
    The blessing of the Spirit of all grace
    Let us go into the world rejoicing
    It is Christ who goes before us.
    Thanks be to God, Amen.

    Benediction

    Opening Song (#115 CH)
    He is Lord
    He is Lord
    He is risen from the dead, and he is Lord
    Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess
    That Jesus Christ is Lord

    Reading:
    Philippians 2:1-13 (CEB)

    Song Response: (#117 CH)
    Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
    There’s just something about that name
    Master, Savior, Jesus!
    Like the fragrance after the rain.
    Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!
    Let all heaven and earth proclaim:
    Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
    But there’s something about that name!

    Communion Meditation (#551 CH)
    He drew a circle that shut me out-
    Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
    But Love and I had the wit to win;
    We drew a circle that took him in!

    Elder’s Prayer
    All are invited to the table of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Closing Song (#537 CH)
    My hope is built on nothing less
    Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
    I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
    But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
    On Christ the Solid Rock I stand,
    All other ground is sinking sand;
    All other ground is sinking sand.

    Benediction
