We live in a different world now
A selfie at a funeral? President acting like a frat boy? Is all this a sign of the descent of our culture?
Just heard all those words on Fox news as I type this morning, and its hard not to agree how much we have changed... particularly leadership by principles.
Meditating upon Isaiah 40 about the power of God to lift up and put down countries, and wondering if the new covenant emphasis on the movement of God to be vulnerable at the cross and speak with love and freedom does give us the ability to sink our own ship.
I still believe and hope that God stays close as we flee from the foundations, because His love is stronger than our own delusions of grandeur, for he knows we are dust in the wind, the plant that grow up and withers and is blown away.
Help us Lord to find our center and our strength from you.
P.S. the Navy Orchestra and Singers are now singing the Hallelujah Chorus, and there you have it, there is hope for joy to the World.
