Election Day choices: start with prayer

Channing Walker

When election time rolls around, not only do we need to figure who to vote for—we also need to live with the results of the voting. That’s great if our candidate wins, but what if he or she doesn't?

Making the right choice when negative campaigning suggests opposing candidates are somehow flawed, dishonest, or immoral—and then living with the results—may not be easy.

In this Q&A chat, Channing Walker, a Christian Science practitioner, discusses how to see past unexpected outcomes, negative campaigning, and voter apathy to lift the tone of the electoral process to a more spiritual, more harmonious perspective. He also answers questions from site visitors and shares ideas on bringing the Golden Rule into political decision-making, and on how an understanding of God's governance helps you make good decisions in the voting booth and beyond.
