Just how important ARE the week’s elections?

I stumble across the most appropriate little gems in the ordinariness of my life with God. It never fails to amaze me how perfectly timed they “seem” to be. Hmmm…

For instance:

There are Christians who have hysterical reactions…as if the world would have slipped out of God’s hands…

The world is not a roll of the dice going toward chaos. A new world has begun to happen since Christ has risen…

Jesus Christ, we rejoice in your definitive triumph…
with our bodies still in the breach and
our souls in tension,
we cry out our first “Hurrah!”
till eternity unfolds itself.

From Luis Espinal, A Guide to Prayer For Ministers and Other Servants (Upper Room Books)
