Judge Trump’s presidency as it happens, not before

From Missouri-

In Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus tells his followers that they should judge a tree by its fruit.

On Tuesday, November 8, Donald J. Trump was elected to be the 45th president of the United States.

Some of my church members cheer the Trump presidency, while other members fear it.

On the Sunday after the election, I spoke to my congregation about the urgent need for healing of the nation and for unity after the most vitriolic presidential campaign in modern history. How many of us will soon forget the chants of “Lock her up” or the accusations of “sexual predator”?

I reminded my members that in our democratic system, elections are the way we choose our political leaders. There are winners and losers, but the country always wins because we transfer power peacefully, not violently.
