Michael Brown: God at Our Doorsteps
"Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem and proclaim that her hard service has been completed ... " Those words from the prophet Isaiah, written to people suffering in exile in Babylon, seem no less urgent now than they did when written over 2700 years ago. If ever there were a world in need of comfort, we are that world.
Political disunity in our country has reached toxic levels almost unparalleled in modern American history. We baby-boomers thought racial unrest and divides would disappear following the Civil Rights Movement of the 60's. But now we look around from the heinous event in Charlottesville to corporate boardrooms and college campuses and churches and on the streets from Ferguson to Staten Island, from Charleston to Cleveland, from my town to yours. And we realize how naïve we were. And then there is global climate change ... and the morass surrounding health care ... and the tragic fact that one out of every five children in our country goes to school hungry, and a hungry child rarely becomes a successful student, thus continuing the tragic cycle of poverty and despair. If the problem of human trafficking doesn't keep us awake at night, then we're not paying attention. Twenty-four million people are literally enslaved today in the sex-for-sale industry. The average child being forced against their will into that wicked work is an 11-year-old little girl. Add to all that ISIS, Boco Haram, missile testing in North Korea, genocide in Syria, and the reality of Russia seeking to interfere with the political and economic affairs of democratic nations around the world. And all of that is before we even get around to topics like cancer and HIV, Alzheimer's and depression and the epidemic of loneliness which, according to Giovanni Frazetto in her new book Together Closer, actually affects more than just our emotions but is now proven to negatively impact our physical health and cognitive abilities.
