Election season

Unless you live in a quiet haven free of media (in which case you probably can’t read this!) you are undoubtedly aware of the upcoming U.S. election. You may not know, however, that one month from today our brothers and sisters in Venezuela will go to the polls for their own presidential election. Incumbent president Hugo Chávez of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela will face Henrique Capriles Radonski of the Democratic Unity Roundtable.

Just as I hope you are praying for civil campaigns and peaceful, fair, democratic voting across the United States, so too I’d ask you to say a prayer for the candidates and the political process in Venezuela, that, in spite of differences of perspective and strategy, all candidates might seek the good for all of Venezuela’s citizens and, whatever the outcome, move forward together.
