(ChurchLeaders) Today Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn into the offices of President and Vice President, respectively, of the United States of America. The Joe Biden inauguration ceremony had a somber yet hopeful tone and did not shy away from mentioning the challenges the country is currently facing.
“This is America’s day. This is democracy’s day,” Biden said as he kicked off his address from the Capitol Building. Alluding to the recent violent unrest and bitter political division that marked this election and the weeks leading up to his inauguration, Biden said democracy had been tested and had ultimately “prevailed.”
