I shared these words after giving stats on Evangelical voter turnout in my Sunday sermon on Feb. 3rd entitled, “What Are The Values You Vote By?” These final words in the sermon may be worth repeating here. It is a reworked nursery rime and I entitled it, “This Little Evangelical” and it goes as follows.
This Little Evangelical
This little Evangelical went to the ballot box.
This little Evangelical stayed home.
This little Evangelical had convictions.
This little Evangelical had none.
And this little unborn baby cried wee, wee, wee, as it died in it’s mother’s womb.
This last line still makes me pause in quietness. What kind of Evangelical are you?
Your fellow bond-servant in Christ,
