It’s that time again. It’s time to vote.
Whether you are a Democrat, Republican, Independent, or something else, Cliff Anderson wants to remind everyone to exercise their right to vote, vote with your values, and to be respectful of everyone else.
We live in a divided time where saying the wrong thing can get you into a lot of trouble…but we also live as Americans with the right (and duty) to vote.
While most of us know that, Cliff wants to remind us about a bigger issue, your conscience.As Christians, we are called to not only to participate in the world we live in, but to express our values.
We are called to vote with our conscience.
In this episode, Cliff explains what that means and how to do it in a way that honors God.
