At times I can be a bit weighty in thought, overly analytical some say. But as more and more reports abound of war, unrest, destruction, hatred and vengeance....we as a society seem to carry on, unaffected or worse unaware. Simply, it seems everyone hates so many things/people/places. ..so much so we have forgotten there is something other than hatred to feel.
My faith teaches me this seperation from goodness and kindness happens and everyone has a choice to live outside of hatred..but fewer and fewer are making that choice. There is an urgency humming in the world now that is different from what I've felt before. I think of the old Hymn sung at my parents wedding, Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place and pray for that with all my heart.
