There is a power in simplicity. Living more simply not only honors our home, it demonstrates that we care for others and know the necessity and the joy of sharing the world’s finite resources. At its heart, living more simply is deeply spiritual.
Poverty exists because we lack community. There is no true sense of all being part of one family serving and caring for one another. Those of us with more of the world’s resources than we need refuse to share the life-saving necessities with brothers and sisters who are daily dying for their lack of what we waste.
I have posted this quote in the distant past, but sometimes we all just need a little reminder. God created our world perfectly. That means there is truly enough for all. The secret is sharing instead of hoarding…and yes, it really is that simple.
Our country, and the values it has always represented to the rest of the world, is being systematically destroyed from within. The current administration is the most corrupt in our nation’s history, and is led by an self-acknowledged sexual predator who is far friendlier with Vladimir Putin than our own military and intelligence services.
We stand by silently at our own peril. We are watching as our nation is being ripped apart without acting. The time to speak out is now.
