It's end-game for the
election. I encourage everyone to continue to pray that the Lord would
allow godly leaders to be elected at all levels of government, and that
each would understand they serve us before an almighty God for whom they
will give account.
Since meeting with
pastors, ministry leaders and speaking at a large variety of venues has
taken center stage, we haven't been having our C3 lunches for a long
time. As you will see below, I've scheduled them for the 13th
(Escondido) and the 15th (San Diego). I hope your schedule
allows you to come and share your election experiences and what your
insight tells you for the labors ahead.
Yours in Christ,
Citizenship Council (Since '02)

Presidential Election and the Future of Israel
19, 2012 - Few national elections have as many consequences as the one
we face in November. The economy, national debt, first amendment freedoms,
and the sanctity of life and marriage are all at stake. Unfortunately, this
divisive political campaign has overshadowed the future of our nation's
spiritual soul-mate: Israel. (To read the rest of the article click here)
News Media as Useful Idiots
The Presidential debate was
a rare opportunity for the public to see the candidates without being
manipulated by the press.
6, 2012 - The first Presidential debate was a remarkable illustration of
the Biblical truth expressed in Proverbs 18:17, "The first to present
his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him."
The amount of surprise and shock in how well Romney performed, and how
poorly Obama did was both immediate and strong. The question that needs
asking is why was this so unexpected? (To read the rest of the article click here)

Minute Ministry Tip #7 (From October 2010)
seems every election is the most important one we've ever had. In some
respects they have become more critical over the years because of the
government's increasingly irresponsible lack of fiscal and moral restraint.
Many factors are making this particular election a bellwether for
correcting the destructive "changes" being imposed upon the
entire nation. Grassroots involvement has rarely been as intense as this
time around. To continue the momentum, I encourage each of us to perform
our own little "Get-Out-The-Vote" campaign with our families,
friends, and particularly our church contacts. Encourage everyone you meet
(who shares your values) to commit to vote. Don't forget about shut-ins or
the frail (family, friends, and acquaintances) who may have difficulty
physically getting out to vote, or may be overlooking their absentee
Make up a phone call and
e-blast list to remind people to vote, particularly over the weekend before
the election, and then on Election Day for final stragglers. Make yourself
available to drive someone to the polls if necessary. Finally, remember to
be creative, gracious, and available, but without nagging. Every vote does
count, but our Christ like behavior towards others will count even more.
If you have a pastor or
ministry leader who's willing to discuss these types of ministries in a
legal, Christ-honoring, biblically-balanced way, I'll take them to lunch to
talk about it. There's no obligation, and you have nothing to lose.
