It’s been the most amazing 24 hours. I have seen the very best of people and am living in encouragement about the days ahead in this great country of ours.
Yesterday, we had hundreds of people gather for worship and Holy Communion to come together and be one in praying for our country. Some came as early as 6 am and some came very late after work, school, and events. They all came and knelt as they were able and poured out their prayers and intercessions to our God who is able. It was one of the most touching events I have ever witnessed.
Today in our staff meeting, I witnessed the same kind of inspiring oneness. We gathered together in groups of two or three and shared our most thankful thought and our most challenging struggle. Some wept together, some laughed together and some did a little of both! But, we all prayed together and God was fully present to make us one in Him.
As diverse as we are as a staff, we were one in Christ and with Christ and it was simply beautiful. That is THE way forward. Many will suggest that there are several ways forward, but if we are to be honest as a nation THE way forward is being one with God as our leader.
My prayer as you read this is that you would know you are loved. It matters not if your team colors are red, blue, or whatever. God loves you and God’s intent is that we who are different in so many ways be one, one in Christ. Lord, let it be so as we go forward together with you!
