WE DON’T ALWAYS GET TO CHOOSE OUR TEACHERS. And the lessons are not always sweet. Donald Trump, I believe, will prove to be a great teacher, but not necessarily in the ways he intended. I may learn how to be or how not to be from him but, either way, I will learn. I will also pray for him and, in so doing, I will be praying for us all. May our eyes be opened; our hands made steady; our purpose solidified; our hearts fortified; our compassion justified; may our pain motivate us; our love strengthen us; and may our lessons be well-learned. I look forward, with caution, but also with hope and faith, to the journey.
