Love and courage in today’s world

Given the world events — be it terrorism, sudden deaths, weather disasters — everything feels terribly fragile right now. The world feels smaller and scarier. Who knows what will happen next? We hold our breaths and wait with fear tightening our hearts.

Whether we like it or not, each and everyone of us are connected as we share this one great blue-green planet bobbling in the multiverse. And now, we need each other more than ever. St. Paul reminded us “to fight the good fight” and I suggest that means holding the light and not succumbing to the depths of fear and panic that can erode our spirits.

So let’s take a walk on the wild side. Let’s be gutsy and brave. Let’s be counter-intuitive and open our hearts. Let us unite in the courage, tenacity, and fortitude of love and peace.

May it be so.
