Preachers and Politics

October 11, 2016

The Rev. Mike Eischen is a real-life friend and colleague. He recently wrote the following and graciously gave me permission to share it with you.

As we draw closer to our national election, Mike brings a memory, an observation, and a recommendation for these next four weeks  — 

In my time as pastor of Monticello (IL) United Methodist Church a new family came to worship. A few days later they told me they left their former church in town after the pastor told the congregation to vote for a certain presidential candidate.

It is not a good idea.

I think the feds will prosecute a few pastors to make examples. They should.

Civil political discussion has a place among Christians at church…. The key is civil. But not from the pulpit.

—Smart advice from a smart guy.
