Christians' reflections on the new President

Here are thoughts on the inauguration from a few Christians I admire:

Darryl Dash: "Go easy on Barack; the job of Saviour is already filled."

Dan Edelen: "Unlike some, I believe that we Christians are called to support our leaders, even when we disagree with some of their policies."

Bill Gnade: "Has there ever, in the history of the American people, been a more blind, conformist, passive and incurious mass than those who have deified Barack Obama?"

J.D. Hatfield: "Our prayer is that through this man, through these times, your righteousness would prevail."

SWAP Blog: Let's "remember the thing that made America great - the drive and determination of the individual who chooses freely to unite with others for a better future for all, not one who looks to others for their own brighter future."

Jared Wilson: "I do not hope in President Obama, but I do hope for him."

What are my own thoughts? Let's be diligent in praying for the newly inaugurated most powerful man in the world. He is sure to disappoint those who deify, but let us pray he far exceeds the expectations of those who vilify.

prez O has been telling us all along that a lot of what happens is up to all of us.

and it really is, what we do and why we do it.

the leader can only make enough of an impact, towards a way for us to hear those words and act upon them.

we can talk and have opinions, but we must have action in Love to back that up.

and most of the changes necessary are possible within our immediate vicinity and in our personal lives and even more...our heart and mind.
