Our political party
I must confess, I am not the most informed on the plethora of current events in our midst. We and some dear friends thought we'd remedy that with a dinner party where we'd discuss all the political issues on the table before election day. It was exceedingly enlightening to dissect the presidential candidates and the slew of propositions together, rather than succumbing to befuddlement by our lonesome. I whipped up chicken enchiladas with caramelized onions and fresh guacamole for dinner, and all-American caramel apples for dessert, which I made from the bounty of apples we picked from the orchard over the weekend. It was such a fun evening with the Erlbaums, who always encourage and edify us, as we all attempted to discern how we could vote with a biblical perspective in mind, with help from this book, this resource, and most importantly, here. We even cast ballots with little letters into a collecting dish for each ballot measure. I must say, I now feel a ton more prepared to vote confidently on November 6th, thanks to the healthy discourse. Mission accomplished!
