hopeful day

What a hopeful day! I watched the inauguration of President Obama round at the home of our US friends Ken and Debby. Such a memorable moment, leading to a presidency full of possibility, although the challenges are huge. I really liked his assertion that the USA will seek to be a friend of each nation and every man, woman and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity. May it be so.

here's to building friendships across the world, with people who have previously occupied and oppressed others, may they take a step of trust towards friendship

may we become aware that it's not ok to make false accusations against whole nations, and understand God's heart for justice is not compatible with a exclusive or limited sense of who are the people of God

and may we find ways to show a tangible love and compassion to those recently suffering loss and homelessness, oppression and hopelessness, as a result of an illegal occupation of their country
