Dear brothers and sisters,
Today, the 45th president of the United States of America will take the solemn oath of office, President-elect Donald Trump.
|Bishop Carl A. Kemme|
Witnessing this transition of power is a hallmark of our free and democratic society. Regardless of how we voted or to which political party we may offer our allegiance, as Christians and faithful citizens, we are duty bound to pray for the president and all elected officials.
The assuming of governance in society today brings with it untold challenges. While we may not always agree with decisions made or directions taken by any of our elected officials, we nonetheless must offer them our prayers and respect.
I pray that as we observe this moment in our history, we will personally exercise our Christian values by praying for those who are now charged to lead and represent us. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.
+ The Most Rev. Carl A. Kemme, D.D.
