Two items dominate the calendar this week in the U.S.
First, the celebration of the civil rights prophet, Dr. Martin Luther King, with a national holiday that bears his name. And second, the partisan impeachment of Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States.

Dr. Martin Luther King would be pleased–and give God the glory.
“Great things He has done.”
I was born too late to experience the horrors and deprivations of the first two World Wars (1914-18 and 1941-45).
But I’ve read enough history to realize that any talk about World War III must be serious–especially with nuclear weapons.
Since the recent killing of Qassem Soleimani, the terrorist head of the Iran’s elite Quds Force, some commentators have stated that Donald Trump brought us to the brink of World War III.

The second decade of the 21st century has begun and it’s easy to play off the number “2020.” For most of my life my vision was 20/800, corrected only by contact lenses. Since having cataract surgery, I can see “20/20” without help.
I’m also trying to spiritually glimpse what is in store for the planet in 2020 and beyond, and will do my best today to share what I “see.”
Here’s my view of the world in the year of our Lord 2020.
