I find it both settling and faith-building to seek answers to important questions. That’s how I became a follower of Jesus–God answered my deepest questions about life and meaning.
Looking for perspective on vital questions continues to be a “peacemaker” in my heart and mind.
I believe many people are seeking answers to our global situation involving the coronavirus. Today I will give my best shot.
Why the pandemic?
I was deeply impacted by contrasting events that took place this week in our nation’s capital.
In the ornate Senate chamber on the Capitol Grounds, one hundred U.S. senators (and a half empty chamber) listened to a litany of lies about impeaching a U.S. president.
At the same time, on Friday afternoon, possibly 225,000 regular folks–mostly young people–gathered on the Washington Mall to march for the truth about abortion.
Lies on the Hill and truth in the streets.
Who are you going to believe?
Darkness descended on the United States last week when the U.S. House of Representatives impeached President Trump on a party-line vote (with four Democrat defections).
It happened–despite any evidence of a crime–to nullify the votes of 63 million Americans in the 2016 election. It was a sad day for truth, democracy, fair elections and love and light.
Merry Christmas, America.
But the ugliness of this sin or all sins combined do not rank as the greatest power in the universe. This week we celebrate the awesome reality that will ultimately triumph in history.
The Incarnation of Jesus Christ: God’s Love & Light.
