  1. While I still plan on voting, this was a very insightful and
    intelligent take on not voting as a Christian. I love the concept of
    still being an active part of the election process that Nekeisha
    proposes. So it’s not about being apathetic, but taking a theological
    stance on why not to vote. It’s interesting to me, and potentially to
    other listeners that this is not her first presidential election in
    which she won’t be voting, but has been a lifestyle choice of hers for a
    while now. My favorite thing that she said: “Christianity is an
    invitation to a community where social hierarchies
    don’t limit us from being in right relationship with one another.” I
    especially love this comment through the lens of shalom community and
    justice: right relationship.
