On the eve of the inauguration of Barack Obama as President of the United States of America, I cannot do better than to point you to the post headed 'Change!' on the Revd Amy Spivey's blog It is written by her husband, the Revd Timothy Moore (and posted with his permission), and I invite you to share it with these two American Methodist Minsters at present serving in the UK.

This post contains the words 'what people are interested in are not uncertain time frames of possible future promises but present arrivals at the shores of change. Such change will not happen by accident.' He ends the post with a challenge and asking 'What appropriate viral text message might the church have to offer in response to Obama's election and the world's hopeful cries?' I will leave you to go over there and see for yourselves what Tim offers as such a text message.

May God bless America under the Presidency of its new President, Barack Obama, that the world also might benefit from his leadership under God.

Yes, Amy, it was great to be able to share in your excitement on that historic day. Now comes the hard part, to put his ideals and promises to the test. He will need all our prayers to support him, Lorna.
