Layout 1In a tense and divisive election season, Good Samaritan is preaching that while we’re not called to agree with each other, we are called to stay in community with one another, to pray with each other, and to offer love, acceptance and prayers for our neighbors and our nation.  

On Election Eve, Monday, November 7 at 6:00 p.m., Good Samaritan Episcopal Church, Brownsburg will join with more than two dozen Episcopal churches throughout central and southern Indiana to offer a neutral place for prayer, quiet reflection, and the lighting of a candle as the nation prepares to vote. The Brownsburg church without walls will gather on Brownsburg’s Town Hall Green (61 N. Green Street) for a short interfaith prayer service, open to people of all or no spiritual backgrounds.

“Blue, red, or independent—it’s up to you,” said The Rev. Dr. Gray Lesesne, the church’s pastor. “We will come together to pray for our town, county, state, and nation and for all candidates who have offered themselves for office. No one will ask for or offer opinions or campaign for candidates or issues. Instead, we will simply come together to create a quiet place to center our thoughts, to pray for our nation, to light a candle, and to prepare ourselves to exercise our civic duty.”
