President-elect Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, attended Christmas Eve services on Saturday at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida — the church where the two were married 11 years ago.
The Trumps arrived at the 10:30 p.m. service to applause and cheering from the congregation, as they proceeded to take communion and listen to a message from the Rev. James Harlan.
The soon-to-be first couple sat in the third-row for two hours, as Harlan offered up a sermon that the Washington Post said “might have had some relevance to the president-elect.” What was the topic of his message? Not sweating the small stuff.
“All of us have some hurts, some resentments, some fears, some ways that someone has hurt us or offended us in the past that we won’t let go of,” Harlan preached, according to the Post.
At another point, he said, “I can tell you over time those little hurts, those little slights, those little things consume us, and they will push out that space for God’s love all too easily.”
The Trumps returned to his Mar-a-Lago resort, where they celebrated Christmas.
