Ministry Today – Serving and empowering church leaders

Summoning the Church

Despite that last statistic, 11th-hour campaigning from both the Republican and Democratic parties indicates just how hazy the line between politics and faith really is. Though both the McCain and Obama campaigns say they've been careful not to compromise regulations placed on churches, both launched church-targeted initiatives on Sunday across the nation. Volunteers for the McCain campaign included thousands of church members distributing literature and calling fellow churchgoers to urge them to vote. Obama's initiative included distributing a "nonpartisan letter" from the Illinois senator to black churches in battleground states and urging members of those churches to read the letter during worship services.
