Have you heard this term? Many people feel uncomfortable being in a political environment when there is collective discussion for who will be our next leader. They use the term “politicking.” They believe that God is not present when there is indication that this is a political process. How can we absolve members of this delegation and nominating committee of this fear? Did Jesus politicize his message to the people? Did he self-select the areas and followers to spread his message for a particular purpose? Maybe we are not viewing the term “politicking” in the right context. How can we redefine this term so that members of the delegation feel like this is a spiritual process?
