What do you do with the mad that you feel? -Fred Rogers

There is so much wrong with the world. Every single direction we look, we see fear, rage, and injustice. What once felt so certain has suddenly evaporated right before our very eyes. What are we becoming? The disorientation isn’t just in the headlines; it is swirling around in each of our minds. In moments of genuine despair, if we pray, we pray very honestly. “Have you fallen asleep at the wheel of the universe?” “Do you even care about what is happening down here?” “If you’re there, please come through!”

At the same time, there is so much right with the world. Every single direction we look we see people laughing, the kitchen smells of something wonderful, and you just rediscovered an old favorite song. People are learning to get along in new ways, and if you’re paying attention, you will sometimes find a sudden grin on your face while sitting traffic. Where did that come from? It came from Grace. If you remember to pray at that moment, it is usually a short prayer; two words – “Thank You.”
