I just wanted to mention a general point about this series, because I think it's worth clarifying. First, I don't feel I have much to contribute on this blog regarding the current election itself. My quietness on the blog for so many weeks (months?) was partly because I was simply getting bogged down in election news and opinions. I'm hoping for a particular outcome (which you don't really need to know, though I think it's rather obvious - particularly if you've been following my links section in the sidebar over the past few months), but praying that God's will be done.
The point of this series, as something that might be of value to others (and is certainly helpful to me in writing and clarifying my thoughts on it) is that as we pray for our country and the upcoming election, we would do well to reflect on and renew our commitment to being better witnesses to Life in our communities and in our country. Without ordinary people as witnesses, I think the political realm of the pro-Life movement has little chance of success anyway. And no matter who wins the election on Tuesday, there's a lot of work to be done in this regard - which is the sort of work available to families and busy homeschool moms with little ones and such.
