I pledge my allegiance

Our hope shouldn't lie in a candidate or a political party. Kings and presidents won't lead us to peace. I want peace and I want love. It is not just about who we vote for on November 4th, but how do we live on November 3rd, November 5th, etc.

I will be pledging my allegiance to Jesus.

Ever since reading the Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne I have known that I will be voting for Jesus. He has out a book entitled Jesus for President. I haven't read it, but have heard a lot about it. Check out Shane explaining the book below. No matter who you are voting for, my prayer is that our hope is not of this world, that we do not think that if 'our candidate' is elected things will be magically perfect, my prayer is that we remember where our hope and allegiance should be.
