We have turned the corner. Summer is about to give way to Autumn. School is underway and nervously praying to be to stay open. The days are growing shorter and the nights are becoming longer. The cycle of selecting a new President presents itself once again.
Meanwhile, Covid 19 continues to disrupt our peaceful lives. Civil unrest dots our nation. The darkness of injustice still haunts our country. Anger and frustration seems to shadow beauty and vastness of opportunity our beloved United States has to offer.
Today, Matthew offers a perspective to guide us through the malaise of our current world. Consider these four points:
1) There is a value to holding the Community together. There is a need for Accountability. A sense of law and order is necessary for society to function.
2) As such, society benefits from the establishment of boundaries. They offer a sense of direction and provide purpose.
3) In order to stay strong and connected any relationship including Communities require conversation. Dialogue is essential. Prayer and worship are vital to Faith Communities.
4) No matter what, God is always at work among us. Grace, mercy and love permeate the world in which we live. We can count on his Omni-presence.
We have a choice. We can either join the rhetoric of our current world and be disappointed or we can choose to embrace the wisdom and light of the Gospel and discover true happiness!
