Christians: Unite To Pray
Let’s not let partisan politics separate us from one another and from God.
Let’s pray, and…
When we pray let’s remember that real power in this world — the power to save, to transform, to change — ultimately rests not in political parties or presidents or protests but in the life, the death, and the resurrection of Jesus.
When we pray let’s remember that, through the Holy Spirit, this power dwells within otherwise ordinary people who continue the mission of Jesus: preaching good news to the poor, freeing the captives, giving sight to the blind, releasing the oppressed, and proclaiming the year of the Lord’s favor (Luke 4:16-21).

Last week I was on a school campus. I was meeting a friend. While waiting I looked for a seat in the commons area. I saw many students laughing, talking, playfully interacting, and studying.
I scanned the area. There are two seating arrangements. There were a few tables for four, but most of the seats were pairs of adjoined chairs with pivoting desktops. The pairs faced other pairs of adjoined chairs with a common table between the four seats. Thus providing a clear social setting.
As a stranger I had a dilemma, face my fear of rejection or find a seat elsewhere.
