Maybe a picture of a nice lizard will cheer me up (worth a try)
The last couple nooze items I studied, then wrote up, have kind of sucked the air from my lungs. Ex-Archbishop of Canterbury sez being trans is “a sacred journey.” Current senior bishop sez they don’t know how to define “woman” anymore. Pregnant woman scrawls on her belly, “Not Yet A Human,” meaning the baby she carries in her womb: already alienated from it. Highly-paid, highly visible barking idiots insisting men can get pregnant.
Forgive me, Lord, for wondering: but have you gone on vacation? The world is going to hell and we need some help down here!
And then I think of Jesus sleeping in the boat while the disciples panic (Mark, Ch. 4), they’re convinced the storm’s gonna sink the boat and drown them all. Finally they wake Jesus, who commands the storm to stop (which it does, right away). And he turns to the disciples and asks, “Where’s your faith?”
It ain’t easy, watching John Kerry and his friends trying to destroy our civilization. How far will the Lord let them go?
We don’t know. That’s why we need faith. And that’s why faith is hard. But only faith can stand up against the worst of times. Only faith can get us through.
