As today, the US electorate can cast their vote for Trump or Clinton, pundits say that we should learn the outcome by 4am GMT tomorrow, Wednesday 9th November. The tone of this bitter election campaign contrasts sharply with the passage* from tomorrow's Bible Study in our church coffee bar from 2-3.30pm. It includes notions of 'showing kindness and compassion to one another' and 'not doing anything from selfish ambition or from any cheap desire to boast'. Let us hope and pray that after the election, we will start to see more of the higher motives and messages coming from the next occupant of the White House than we have seen and heard so far in this campaign.

* The passage for discussion tomorrow is Philippians chapter 2, verses 1 to 18. You are welcome to come along.
