Last night I watched the Westminster Dog Show broadcasting live from NYC. This morning I’m reading horror stories about what’s happening to dogs in China because of Corona Virus fears.
Same day, same world..the contrast is jarring.
It makes me wonder about lines..
Lines between order and chaos, lines that separate modernity from primitivism, cooperation from tribalism, truth from lies, trust from fear, happiness from anger, peace from war, hope from despair, love from hate.
I worry that the lines are thin..but when society groups the categories together and holistically invests in order, modernity, cooperation, truth, trust, happiness, peace, hope and love..I think we stand a much better chance of “holding the line” – especially in times of crisis.
One more reason to sink deep roots into your community.. to seek friendships, to provide support, to turn from self-centeredness and isolation, to do good, to spread love and yes, to seek God..because folks, we need Him.
