Preaching Politics

Not me, I'm chicken. But I am going to use the election as the take off point for my sermon (I think). I'm preaching on Psalm 107. For reasons that escape me the lectionary doesn't include the entire psalm and even the parts that are included omit the ending verse(s) of the stanza (or whatever they are called). I don't preach on the psalms much. In fact, I think I've preached on the psalms once. I don't read them much either. I'm not much into poetry and so on.

But this psalm is perfect for focusing on ourselves or others than God to solve our problems. And it is full of give thanks to God for God's steadfast love.

Anybody out there gonna mention the elections Sunday?
