G'wan. Go to church

[Jesus said,] "When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed; this must take place, but the end is still to come. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. This is but the beginning of the birthpangs."

So.... it's not all the rumors and destruction and all that we need to be focused on... we must remember.... it's new life.

Oh. Well, that's easy. No problemo.

G'wan. Go to church. Lift up your head. Stand up. Keep your eye on the prize.

--or something like that.

Not apropos, but on Facebook the Quaker teacher Parker Palmer just shared a video of a man who is one of 20 fluent speakers of his tribe's native tongue. The man describes his decision to quit his job and teach his daughter by immersion, so that the tribe tongue is her first language, and English the second. Perhaps you'd be interested. (Note: This does not look like the poverty that you describe.)
