As much as it felt like the world stopped turning for much of this year, it also felt like our world was rapidly spinning out of control. Viral and political upheaval have forced isolation and high levels of stress on everyone across the planet. Many have been separated from loved ones, many are seriously afraid.
We are coming to the end of what was perhaps the craziest year in human history. Yet, as 2020 draws to a close, we have seen a symbol of hope. I would like to encourage everyone who reads this blog to walk in nature every day. Whether you sit in your garden, walk in the woods, look out over a lake, or go to a park, while you're there, pray from your heart for healing, peace, and love to enter the soul of every living person on Earth. Pray that those in positions of political power gain the courage and wisdom to reject evil and to fight for what is good, moral, and holy.
