Greetings to you all my sisters and brothers, I have heard it said that there is an ancient Chinese curse that goes "May you live in interesting times." The times we live in are interesting indeed. For those of us in America, we have a new President who is totally unlike anyone we have chosen to lead our nation in our countries history. Our views toward being a haven for immigrants seems to be shifting. Our views on caring for the poor and oppressed, on sexual morality, on dealing with crime, on relations with other nations, all seem up for radical change. The question I offer is this, what are your personal views, whether they are influenced by a religious faith or your personal sense of right and wrong, on the state of America, indeed on the state of the world? If you were able to make changes to how things are, what would you like to see? I would ask that in your responses, you propose some concrete ideas instead of generalizations, on how things could be made better. But, I would also ask that if you think things are fine the way they are ( as indeed I would suspect some do) explain why you feel the way you do. In solidarity, Rev. Calli
