I’m in my 68th year of life. I’ve witnessed many frightening days that seemed just as challenging in those moments as the ones we are facing do now. But the fact of the matter is that there is something very different about what’s going on right now. The polarization at the heart of so many of our crises continues to spread like a prairie wildfire because it is being constantly fueled on both sides by cable news and social media. This makes it difficult to slow down and almost impossible to stop. So how do you live as a disciple of Jesus in this kind of world? The Apostle Paul has an answer, So then, if anyone is in Christ, that person is part of the new creation. The old things have gone away, and look, new things have arrived! “(2 Corinthians 5:17 CEB). You are a new creation person! Beginning right now. Regardless of what’s going on. And the Good News is that you can step forward in faith and start living like it right now.
