Jim Daly’s – My “Foolish” Reaction to Obama’s Re-election
Just 1 day after the election, my brothers in Christ Renews His Parish, (CRHP), met to continue our planning for our next renewal. This is a 26 week process where we get to truly know each other in terms of our history & faith journey. The atmosphere was somber. In the end however, we woke up.
The Scripture selection was so appropriate (Sirach 2:1-6), in so many ways from both a personal & political perspective given the roads we have traveled over our lives & the impact of this election. While we all do not share the same political views, I was happy to see we shared agreement that we need to come together, continue to put our trust & faith in God FIRST & strive to view the glass half full.
Focus on the Family is a wonderful Christian organization that aims at living by its ‘name’. Jim Daly’s blog attached helps us to gain a new hopeful perspective & challenge… even in the face of disappointment for so many Catholics that could be critically compromised in the future. We continue to Pray, & support our government, trusting in God FIRST. It’s not for us to know, but to Trust in HIM.
As one of my brothers commented, – It is on our currency, maybe we ought to say it & demonstrate it more often publicly – “IN GOD WE TRUST” … easier said than done. This brought to mind another timely scripture verse… James 2:26 – You can look it up yourself. Pick up that dusty bible. It will be well worth it!
