We have had a lot to contemplate this week. We began by remembering the life and work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. And, today, we witness the peaceful transition of power from one president to another. There is much to make a Christian ponder and pray.

Presidential inaugurations are always an American civil religious festival that reflects the personality and faith of the person being sworn in. Today is no exception.
When the winds of our own fearful hearts and our unruly tongues are causing us to sink into ourselves, we are to rebuke it–and name it to God, and ask how we are to live differently.
