In 2018 Sara and I took a "side-trip" to where, for me, the history of the Moravian Church merged with the "modern world". We took a train from Copenhagen to the Danish castle where King Christian VI was crowned in 1731.
At that coronation, in this room, the dream of establishing foreign protestant missions became a reality for Count Zinzendorf, leader of the renewed Unitas Fratrum. Read more about these thoughts in my Spotlight Blog, to be published by Moravian Board for Cooperative Ministries on election day, November 3.
This is the weekend, nearly 300 years later, when citizens of the United States return to the polls to vote for the next episode of the our nation's history and to confirm the legacy of what it's citizens believe. I feel history and destiny is strangely connected by our civic duty often influenced by how each individual interprets messages heard and scenes witnessed.
In a democracy, no matter how flawed, we all still have a responsibility to influence our future and the destiny of our children. VOTE your conscience!
