The Gathering: Voting Rights

by Elias Blum

I recommend watching this video, for two reasons:

1. Interesting example of how worship, witness and activism are combined by a church that seeks to be a voice of justice and liberation in its community – equipping and encouraging the church to engage in civic life, and at the same time bringing a moral critique to the public square.

2. The portion from 1h32ms to 1h37ms makes clear the connection between political voice and policy choice. Similar principles apply, of course, to arrangements in the UK: if you care about any sort of policy where the interests of ordinary people should matter more and the interests of elites matter less, then you should be interested in constitutional reform. “Fix democracy first.”
