On this day, just before 3pm, as the sky and outlook is darkest. Surely we humans are incapable of redemption without disaster. We are destroying this, our earth. Russians and the West face off to war yet again. Google is moving toward making our humanity an adjunct of its electronic controlled universe. Our children relate with each other through screens rather than face to face. Syrians act with a barbarism not seen since Hitler to their citizens. 1/3 of the world’s population are starving, 1/3 have far too much (me included). Materialism thrives – the new religion – sedating each of us into an animal rather than spiritual state. Which of us has faith that alone we humans will control our exploding population, or enable just societies where all have respect and place?
Thank goodness for Christ’s passion, hope and the Easter redemption which is coming.
