I struggle at mad times like these. It seems that many of us do.
As Paul Jarvis wrote in his Sunday Dispatches this week: “There’s lots of talk about what we can do, or how we can fix it as well. Smarter (much smarter) people than I understand politics and social change better than I do. So I’ll leave that to them and give what I can to their efforts.”
In many ways I fear writing or speaking or creating anything just incase I get it wrong and invite criticism. But I want to offer a voice of hope. To encourage the peacemakers and the positive change seekers during such seemingly mad times. That’s about all I can do.
Sometimes all we can see is cloud. The cloud is only visible because it has light shining from behind it.
This week’s episode of the podcast is a bit different. It’s essentially my raw reflections on what is going on right now and the role I see gentle rebellion playing in it all. After I watched Trump’s inauguration last weekend and the many various responses to it I felt compelled to do one thing. The only thing I know how to do at times like these…I opened my laptop and started to write.
There was one major question on my mind: what on earth is going on, and how can we respond to it?
I don’t have the answer, just more questions. I’m curious about ourselves, our responsibility and choices we might make in the near future. If you’re interested to hear my thoughts then here you go:
