From the November 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Jen Odegaard––staff

November 2012 has arrived, and for many people that means only one thing: The time has come for another presidential election in the United States. Those with passionate political leanings may feel this is a momentous election, and that even the future well-being of America hangs in the balance.

“America will cease to exist if __________ gets elected,” is how Channing Walker describes this sentiment in his article “God Is Not a Republican, Or a Democrat” (p. 50). He points out that although many might find it easy to point fingers at the “other” party, “contemptuous blame is not a healer.” And aren’t healers what we really need in our political landscape today? We need problem-solvers, not problem-makers.
