Let's Not Tear One Another Apart

I haven't been moving around very well lately, and I don't exactly feel inspired to write. But that doesn't mean I have stopped thinking. I wanted to say something about these difficult days in the U.S.A. and our world, to take the approach of addressing the larger context of problems many of us are wrestling with right now.

So I made a video.

The quality is not very good. Except for a few edits, it's just a straight spoken reflection. Anyway, I decided to just post it.

Perhaps there is some value in it.

Thank you for this reflection, Professor! Hope you feel better!
Let's pray for each other!

Pray you feel strength from God's peace & love. Very difficult times ahead but your video focuses on the truth...it's not about us & God's will WILL be done. He is in control, not us. Fr. Prendergast (a mentor to me all my life) who passed away 2 years ago always said something funny but simple & true.
#1 Say your prayers
#2 Mind your business
#3 You'll go to heaven & everyone else will go to hell
He learned this in seminary & he had an amazing sense of humor & wisdom about God & life. Today everyone seems to be minding everyone else's business but their own. We all need to TRUST IN HIM with our worries & anxieties. He said he would provide.
God love you!
