Thoughts and Prayers after the US Elections

Thoughts and Prayers after the US Elections

Dear Friends,

However you voted, I hope you will join me in praying for our newly elected officials. Let us see them letting go of the past and working together to create a nation that works for all. 

Let us be led to hold them accountable to work for this good through our prayers, our letters, emails, articles, etc.

Yet, let us always come from the highest consciousness, seeing and giving thanks for the good we want, even before it manifests, as we treat all with love and respect.  

On Election Eve I participated in a prayer vigil in Claremont aimed to hold the consciousness of unity in America after the election. There Muslims, Christians and Jews came together to hold the high watch for our country. I was moved by the solidarity I felt, despite differing political perspectives.  

My heart goes out to those who felt their battles were lost last night with political offices and with legislation. However, I believe that as long as we hold each other in respect and work together, there is no real loss, for we need each other to climb the mountain we ascend of creating a world that works for all.  

I celebrate with those who have taken on the mantel of responsibility for the next term and see them guided by the wisdom of Spirit in all things.


Rev. Jan Chase

I have been and will continue to pray for you, my brehtor and for those many youth who are with you at camp this week to have hearts that are tender to the Lord. I, too am brought to my knees at the thought of those earliest Believers in comparison to those in our day, including myself, who are many times satisfied with a mediocre life of caring for me and mine . My heart longs to see more of those being wholly devoted to the teaching, fellowship, breaking bread, prayer and everyone being filled with awe in seeing God's work, instead of passing it by with barely a nod seeing it as something we are entitled to have. May our hearts be broken and surrendered to the One who has given us a life with Him. I praise His holy Name and cry out to Him for the divine power of His Spirit to work among us.
