This morning I went to the post office and the farmer’s market. The main road on my way is still under repair, being resurfaced. One lane is shut down and it slows down the flow of traffic. But the end result will be an improvement.
My thoughts turn to communication in our country. We are divided in our opinions and in politics. The division has increased during the pandemic. Have you noticed a division over vaccine policies in your church? Or in your family?
What has happened to us? It is helpful to slow down and consider what has taken place in the past two years. We need to listen to each other and speak with gentleness.
A helpful documentary has been produced in Britain, looking at the issues we encountered in the pandemic. I believe it is well done. You can access it here.
My desire, my prayer is that I can have gracious words. The book of Proverbs has instruction for us.
There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
