notes from the wait

I realize it is not over, but it warms my heart that an honorable and decent man, with the wisdom of a true elder, steps out of retirement in response to what he sees as an existential crisis for our country and for humanity itself, to offer himself as healer, and that enough of us felt it as a balm for our brokeness. I am not making of him an idol, I see his humanity, but this feels like a soul calling.

I pray that, in time, all are soothed, that the chaos which is creating such anxiety on both sides is calmed, so that we can again see one another as fellow human beings — beloved, flawed, and worthy of compassionate respect.
