From food banks to debt counselling, soup vans to street pastors, the church is doing an amazing job treating the victims of a flawed system. But it’s never going to be enough – unless we also get involved in the decision-making process. God cares deeply about the heart of our state, as well as the state of our hearts. Because, as Bart Simpson once famously discovered, the vote is won – and history is made, and the kingdom advanced – by those who show up.
