Finally! Time to vote (if you aren’t among the very many who have done so already). I decided to round-up a list of the pieces I’ve written over the past few months that most pertain to the election today.
First, responses to the four Patheos Election Month questions. This was a great series, generating a lot of response from various bloggers here at Patheos. Check them all out. Here are mine:

2: Does a candidate’s faith matter?
3: What are the key issues for people of your tradition to consider as they approach this election?
4: For whom will you vote for President, and why?

On why race still matters, even when (and probably because) white folks ignore it:
Read. Listen. Share.
And if you haven’t done so already … VOTE!
