(From Pastor Janine)
What a night! In all my years as a reporter I had never covered such an overwhelming upset. Donald Trump confounded polls and most political forecasters to become our President elect. I must admit, Ed and I watched it all as long as we could stay awake.
The ramifications of this election are, in Trump’s words, H-U-G-E! And our response as followers of Jesus Christ is just as critical. Whether you are exceedingly joyful or concerned with the election results, we must not forget that we represent our Savior with our attitudes, words and actions. Our forefather John Wesley observed heated division over an election among members of his holiness Societies. He met with believers as they were about to vote and advised them:
1. To vote without fee or reward for the person they judged most worthy,
2. To speak no evil of the person they voted against, and,
3. To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side."
