It was a fairly early evening. We knew early and with confidence that Barak Obama would be our new President. I sit for morning devotions today and read in I Corinthians 12. Paul has just talked of the many gifts that together make up the body of the Church (see yesterday's post.) Today he concludes with: "earnestly desire the higher gifts, and I will show you a still more excellent way."
For me, the greatest gift of this election is the desire that Barak Obama inspires in so many to cultivate and give the best that they have and are. That alone has shone us "a still more excellent way." Blessings
