What can we do?

Oil painting “My Son Praying” by artist Natalie Buske Thomas

I’ve been hearing a lot of military air craft today, probably due to the deployment of troops out of Hunter Army Airfield. There’s nothing we can do to stop certain things, but we can remain independent sovereign humans, refusing to comply with unlawful demands that we do not consent to. We can offset economic hardship and health fears by being resourceful, the way our grandparents were during the Great Depression. Most of all, we can pray.

Tonight my heart feels heavy, as many things are weighing on me- many of these things are probably weighing on you as well. The spiritual woods of darkness and solitude, where God speaks to us… this is where I need to go. I plan to pray, rest, and read for a while before going to bed. I will pray for YOU. I believe that I don’t need to know who you are, or anything about you. All I need is to feel empathy for anyone who needs prayer, and that’s all of us. May God bless you and keep you, may His face shine upon you and give you peace.
