Friends, I think this is the most important article I have ever read.
I found it hard to read and hard to face. For some time I have been hoping it wasn’t true, wasn’t happening, could be avoided. I no longer think so.
Now I see I have to move my thinking on. The cultivation of simplicity, kindness, quietness, wisdom, understanding, spiritual strength, and peace, has sharpened from advisability to urgent necessity.
I am not at all sure I have the resources for all that lies ahead. But I think of the words of Jesus: “The light is with you for a little longer. Walk while you have the light, so that the darkness may not overtake you. If you walk in the darkness, you do not know where you are going. While you have the light, believe in the light, so that you may become children of light.” (John 12:35-36)
