On behalf of the more than 12 million United Methodists throughout the world, the Bishops of The United Methodist Church congratulate former Vice President Joe Biden on his inauguration as the 46th President of the United States.

We also offer our congratulations to Senator Kamala Harris on her historic swearing in as the first female and first woman of color to the office of Vice President of the United States.

We pray that President Biden and Vice President Harris will embrace the core values of their election to serve all people regardless of their political views.

We thank all who faithfully participated in the election process at all levels in order to sustain the democratic process. May God continue to bless all local, national, and world leaders with wisdom and sober judgment as they fulfill the trust and obligations afforded to them by the people of the world.
