Last Wednesday Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. Biden spoke of hope and unity; leading not “just by examples of our power, but by the power of our example.” The message of unity and hope are welcome ones, after all, we’re the United States, the world’s greatest beacon of hope. And it’s the freedom offered here that gives hope and attracts people from every nation on earth. We pray that as American’s we’d rally around First Amendment freedoms of speech, religion, and the right to assemble. That we’d get a renewed understanding of civility. This is what truly unifies us. To those ends, we pray that Pres. Biden would lead and help us rediscover and embrace core American ideals that unify.
