If you live in the United States you are getting a new president today whether you like it or not. You've probably noticed that over the last two years people are opinionated when it comes to who should or shouldn't have that job....like REALLY REALLY opinionated. The political divide in the United States seems to be growing by the minute.  We, as followers of Jesus, need to stop being a part of that divide.  We need to unite under the banner of Christ and love others no matter what. So, if you have an opinion today that is going to...
