Finding our way to The Way one situation at a time. I don't know how great it will be, but I expect it will be interesting, and I look forward to it going on past all reason because wonder is just that way. Are you coming or not?
The following is an excerpt from my book,
"A Handbook for the Spiritual Journey,"
"Less than 45% of registered voters
turn out to vote in most elections.
50% of 45% is only 25% of the voters
registered to vote.
If you cannot scare 25%
of the registered voters
into voting for you,
you should be ashamed.
The money spent
by the status quo in campaigns
in local and national elections
has been spent to scare
its faithful (fascist) base
into turning out en masse to vote.
It only needs 25% of registered voters
to vote in most elections.
The lethargic 75%
give elections away
time and again."
Registering more voters
and working to get all voters
to realize the importance
of turning out and voting
in every election great and small
in local as well as national elections
is the work that sways the future.
And it must be done!
Kansas is evidence in support
of the importance of voting
in the service of a viable future
for all people.
Nothing has the power
of exercising our right to vote
by voting in every election
for the good of all the people.
I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing.
I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
