Plans keep getting changed – what I was planning on bringing as a witness this Sunday no longer seems appropriate after the results of Tuesday’s election. I cannot tell you at this moment what my message will be. I know that many of you feel vulnerable, fearful and at risk. I also know there are those who are pleased with the results of the election and see it as a signal for better days for the country. We are indeed a nation divided.
I also know there are so many questions. Important questions. Life altering questions. Will my marriage be deemed invalid? Will I lose my insurance and not be able to get new insurance because of a pre-existing condition? Will people I love be forced to leave the country who have lived here since they were small children? I don’t know the answers to those questions and the many more that I am sure concern all of us.
While I may not know the answers to any of these questions, what I do know is that whether it is a time of celebration, a time of loss or a time of uncertainty, we are better together than apart.
I lift up my eyes to the hills—
from where will my help come?
My help comes from God,
who made heaven and earth.
