Of all places I was at a massive pumpkin festival when I sat down on a tour bus for a few minutes with Brent Keilen. We discussed the vital significance of Christ-followers engaging the political space with consistent prayer, political participation, and standing strong for the values of faith, family, and freedom.
It’s more than the political space though — we’re called to be salt and light in education, arts and entertainment, and all arenas of influence. Will you embrace the call?

Our Dialogue Edges on Pray, Vote, Stand
- Sustained, consistent prayer is vital to “season” society with salt and light. Not just every election cycle.
- At a minimum, we’re all called to stay aware and vote. But we should consider other ways to engage culture. This includes political involvement. Of course, this looks different for each one.
- Together, we must elevate our resolve for the values of faith, family, and freedom. Pray, vote, stand!
I have one great political idea … it is in substance, ‘Righteousness exalts a nation; sin is a reproach to any people.’ … This constitutes my politics—the negative and positive of my politics, and the whole of my politics. — Frederick Douglass, African-American Abolitionist, 1800’s
