LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – One Louisville congregation devoted its Bible study to promote love and discourage divisiveness after a brutal election.
 
"Why in the world would we be praising the day after Donald Trump became president? Because God knew what he was doing," Pastor Tim Findley Jr. said.

Pastor Findley Jr. shared a different type of message for his predominately Black congregation after a night that was nothing short of an upset for them.

"We have the emotion of anger," Pastor Findley Jr. said. "We deal with anger. We're frustrated, but we have to love all people."
 
Eighty-eight percent of Black voters supported Hillary Clinton, compared to the 7 percent that supported Trump. The outcome of the election left many feeling like their voices weren't heard.

Jamil Anderson's daughter was a first time voter.

"Will she want to even try to vote anymore," Anderson said. "Did she feel like she had a choice in the matter?"

Pastor Findley Jr. wants his congregation to move forward, drawing strength from their Christian values. He's not encouraging protests. He's encouraging love for others.

It's was a refreshing message for disappointed voters like Kristin Combs.

"I feel like we can make it," Combs said. "We can keep going."

Across town at Trump's Louisville campaign headquarters, Jeffrey Klusmeier, the chairman of Young Professionals for Trump, is hoping for the same thing.
 
"I think everybody's going to come together," Klusmeier said. "It's easy. I'm on the winning side, but if you're not you need to stay engaged in politics. You need to stay engaged and see what Trump does."
