The light of sun
Turns dreary rain
Into silver threads
With just a hint of rainbow.

“Transformation in the world happens when people are healed and start investing in other people.” Michael W. Smith
“Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.” Marianne Williamson
Who is responsible for transforming our world? Can we leave it up to institutions? Politicians and government? The Church and faith-based organizations?
What would true revolution look like? Does it have to be violent? Or would it be our refusal to join in the angry, bitter, hateful and frightened acts of others?
What would happen if we searched for truth and chose very carefully? How much power would we take back if we considered the news we hear;if we stopped believing every opinion, conjecture and accusation presented to us?
This is a good year to ponder these things. IT is a time of choice. We do have power and responsibility: Don’t let anyone or any entity take that away from you. Don’t settle; really make a decision.
