Dear Miracle Workers,
Today, January 20th we witnessed a display we call “the peaceful transition of power.” The 45th President, Donald Trump, left the White House and Washington DC. Last night he gave a dignified farewell speech. He called us to pray for the new administration, and he extended our whole country's “best wishes” to them. Today Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President and Kamala Harris was sworn in as the first female and woman of color Vice President.
Many were worried, fearful, that this peaceful transition would not happen. This fear was repeated and repeated. Millions felt the effect. Yet, it did happen and it was dignified on both sides. It was also creative and beautiful. Garth Brooks sang an emotional a cappella "Amazing Grace". Lady Gaga sang a powerful "The Star Spangled Banner". What had been predicted as a private, indoor inauguration event turned out to be a fairly normal, outdoor, public event. President Biden was clear, powerful, pertinent, and inspired.
Hopefully those who were so worried will see this as a manifested healing, a “miracle," a demonstration of the goodness of people. As inspiring as all these events are, I am choosing to see this as merely a symbolic reminder of the true, peaceful, transition of power that we all are involved with, the transfer of the power we gave to the ego, to the true power we now see flows unlimited and eternal from the Holy Spirit. Let us open up to that transfer and accept it with open mind and heart. "You who perceive yourself as weak and frail, with futile hopes and devastated dreams, born but to die, to weep, and suffer pain, hear this: all power is given you in earth and Heaven. There is nothing that you cannot do." (OrEd.WkBk.191.11)
