In this sermon, Dr. Taylor addresses the riot of feelings most of us have had in the aftermath of the November 8 election results. She counsels that the most important first step is to follow the message of Psalm 46 — to stop and listen for the voice of God. This isn’t a prescription for inaction, but a call to seek perspective about what matters most as we move ahead in this changed world.
