A New America?
Dr. Hannah L. Hofheinz

January 20 marks a major transition for the United States. As we have so many times before, we witness the handing over of national executive power from one president to another. For many on both sides of the political aisle, the transition marks a new set of possibilities. While Trump's campaign looked to the past—"Make America Great Again"—his inauguration portends a future that for many of us will be rife with economic, social, and bodily pains. We can refuse this vision. The marching of women across the country shows this. How can we think about our roles, as communities committed to love and to justice, equity, and compassion in all our relationships, in this time?
Dr. Hannah L. Hofheinz is Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology and Church History at the Ecumenical Theological Seminary in Detroit.
