Congratulations to President Obama on his re-election! Let’s pray that he succeeds in leading the country to strive not only for personal responsibility but also responsibility to one another.
As a community of faith, we believe we are all in this together. And, as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. proclaimed, the church’s historic role is to serve as the conscience of the state in advancing freedom and justice for all people. We can find inspiration in the communities of faith before us who worked to abolish slavery, secure women’s suffrage, and end segregation. What important work we have to do in the world!
Blessings as we live out our calling.
