I have decided to stop posting here, and to go out and interact more with the world.
When I first began this site, I assumed it was a lack of knowledge and information that allowed all of the sin to progress. I thought that if I brought some information together, folks would see how foul our world is becoming and get up and try to make a change.
How silly of me to think that in 2019 people were lacking information! It isn't information that we are lacking.
I have to go do.
So, I will cut back on my posting, and seek to physically make changes where I can. I am going to help my neighbor. I pray that we all will be able to face God at that time and will hear: "When I was naked, you clothed me, when I was hungry, you fed me, when I was imprisoned, you visited me..."
In an attempt to help people along, to share ideas there comes a time when we s tihould recognize who we are talking with and adjust our tone, topic, goal...exit strategy. Some are in conversations only to repeat what they have previously heard while others are seeking to understand, to increase in knowledge.
How do you exit when you discover that your partner in the conversation is only repeating...not listening...not sharing? Do you have a 'go to' exit? "I gotta go check my food on the stove?" or "dang prostate! I gotta go!" or "Musta been a bad burrito, excuse me?"
Staying in the conversation beyond your exit is a fools errand. Don't be mislead by thinking this one extra phrase or idea will get them to at least hear you- a fools errand. Remember: when they tell you who they are, believe them!
For the past few months there has been discussion of asylum seekers at the southern borders of the US. In the past few weeks stories and images have leaked describing the horrible conditions of those that are being detained. Last week congress persons reported the conditions as being very similar to concentration camps.
This week we have tanks in the nations capital...surrounding the white house.
Did I miss the coup? Who won? Where do I get the new uniforms?
There is nothing patriotic about any of this.
More prisoners than any country in history
Kids in cages.
Tanks on the streets.
Friendships with dictators.
Fights with democracies.
VIP access for donors at a July 4 event.
Attacking the press.
Lord, come quickly.
