God will always lead us
Dear Editor: The election now is over. To the surprise of many, Donald Trump won and will now become our 45th president. Let us be reassured that no matter how contentious this election was, God was there all along and led us through it. What is important now is that we do not forget where our real help comes from, especially if there is now a time of political upheaval and economic uncertainty.
The only answer is that we return to a living faith in God, and to the commandments to love Him with all our heart and mind and soul, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. If we truly do this, we will have a chance to recover the firm footing on which our nation was founded, and once again become a symbol of stability and hope for the rest of the world.
It is up to each one of us to work for respect, friendship and unity in our homes, churches, schools and places of work.
Years ago, George H.W. Bush spoke of a thousand points of light. As people of faith, we know what this light is, and where it comes from, and we need to ask and pray that each one of us carries it as we now go forward. Johann Christoph Arnold,
