And also this which I wrote years ago and never told anyone about because I don't write for others so much as for me.
I hope you will read them both. Even if you have read them before.
They seem appropriate today and I feel like being a little loud and evangelical today because these are scary times. And I am afraid. I am afraid for this country. I am afraid for my daughters. I am afraid for myself.
I am afraid of power hungry men who degrade and dismiss everyone who is not a power hungry man. And I know they don't represent all men, but they seem so Many and so Powerful.
And the answer to my fear remains the same as it has always been.
The answer hasn't changed for centuries.
The answer is in faith. The answer is in God. The answer is in a savior. A God who so loves this world that he sent his only son to die for us. For you and for me and even for those we fear.
So call your senator and your representative and march and do whatever else you need to do. These are Important things. But don't forget to also do this:
For the president. No matter whether you like him or not. And pray for those appointed to work beside him. Pray for your representatives and senators. Pray for our judges.
God wants to be in this mess with us but we have to invite him. He won't come in if he's not wanted.
Now more than ever, we have to let him in.
