Did you catch the dedication of the Bush Library yesterday?
The NBC News Facebook page ran this photo along with the following caption:
For the first time since the 2006 funeral of Gerald Ford all the nation’s former living presidents came together with the current commander in chief to honor one of their own Thursday at the Bush Library dedication.
To be sure, these five men represent very different views and ideologies. As evangelical Christians, we’ve applauded some of the things they’ve done and decried others. But at the end of the day, it’s good to acknowledge that what happened yesterday is more than just unique – it’s rare, especially given the various types of governments around the world. That all five men can amicably and peacefully gather stands as a testimony to the strong and enduring traditions of this nation.
This photograph also serves as a good reminder to pray for America’s leaders – past, present and even future.
