ANALYSIS/OPINION:

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I did not and could not support or vote for our new president, but that was then, and this is now. The finger-pointing, character assassination and contention need to end now. Now is the time for all of us to move forward and focus much more deeply on rallying around righteous issues and principles.

The duty of our new president and Congress is to represent all of us. They, more than ever, desperately need the focus of our prayers for them to be strengthened and guided to rise to the challenges of governance on our behalf.

Those who still are angry about the outcome of the elections, some of whom even wonder if God has abandoned us, are persuading themselves and others to become victims of despair and unrighteous contention. Instead of casting blame and demonizing others, it is vital to the well-being of our nation that all of us pray and work to help all of our national leaders overcome the many obstacles that confront all of us.

Our job now as citizens is to stand up, speak out and focus on principles and processes with which Providence wants to bless our nation. We can and should do that, without rancor, in a vigorous and civil debate that will uplift and benefit all of us, “with liberty and justice for all.”
