Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Fifteen Democrats voted against Nancy Pelosi for speaker of the House Thursday afternoon, despite her call for a united vote throughout her party.

  • New York Rep. Anthony Brindisi voted for former Vice President Joe Biden.
  • Tennessee Rep. Jim Cooper  voted “present.”
  • Colorado Rep. Jason Crow voted for Illinois Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth.
  • South Carolina Rep. Joe Cunningham voted for Illinois Democratic Rep. Cheri Bustos.
  • Maine Rep. Jared Golde voted for Illinois Democratic Rep. Cheri Bustos.
  • Ron Kind voted for Georgia Democratic Rep. John Lewis.
  • Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Conor Lamb voted for Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Joe Kennedy.
  • Utah Democratic Rep. Ben McAdams voted for Democratic Florida Rep. Stephanie Murphy.
  • New York Democratic Rep. Kathleen Rice voted for Democratic Georgia gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams.
  • New York Democratic Rep. Max Rose voted for Illinois Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth.
  • Oregon Democratic Rep. Kurt Schrader voted for Ohio Democratic Rep. Marcia Fudge.
  • New Jersey Democratic Rep. Mikie Sherrill voted for Illinois Democratic Rep. Cheri Bustos.
  • Virginia Democratic Rep. Abigail Spanberger voted for Illinois Democratic Rep. Cheri Bustos.
  • Michigan Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin voted “present.”
  • New Jersey Democratic Rep. Jeff Van Drew voted “present.”

Van Drew first voted “no” for Pelosi as speaker of the House instead of naming a member of Congress Thursday, forcing the chair to change his vote to “present.”

The “present” vote makes it so the congressman would be opting to not vote for any member in the House — members were not allowed to vote “no” as it was not an option. Two other members voted “present” during the House vote for speaker. They included Cooper and Slotkin, bringing the tally to three, before receiving enough votes to become speaker of the 116th Congress.

Pelosi wrote a letter in late December to her Democratic colleagues in Congress asking for the entire party to get behind one member for House speaker before they voted. Pelosi pushed to reclaim the seat, despite pushback from nearly 20 Democratic members in the House.

With the government partially shut down, Pelosi will have to figure out how to work with Republicans on a compromise for the border wall, although she has vehemently opposed it, calling it “immoral, ineffective and expensive.”
