As the election season in the United States draws to a close, it's time for a moment of reflection. Here's what I have to offer.
Time for A Moment of Reflection
I lector at 6:30 a.m. mass nearly every Tuesday. Every two years on this Tuesday (during the 32nd week of the liturgical year), my favorite business-oriented bible verse is part of the first reading at mass. It is from the letter to Titus (Chapter 2: 7-8):
“Show(ing) yourself as a model of good deeds in every respect, with integrity in your teaching, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be criticized, so that the opponent will be put to shame without anything bad to say about us.”
After an election season where candidates at al levels have done exactly the opposite of this verse, it is time to reflect how we got here and how we change it going forward.
I believe prayer is part of the answer. All the other parts of the answer? Wow, that's going to take all of us.
Get away from the media today, and have your moment of reflection on what part of the change YOU can make happen! - Mike Brown
