071716 – The Time Is Now

In the midst of grief, tragedy and terror, when we know the center can no longer hold, nonetheless we fear what may lie before us. In 1963 Thomas Merton penned Letters to a White Liberal. Writing in a fractured time, before the Civil Rights Act was passed, when protesters were beaten and activists were jailed, Merton wrote of those days as being a “providential hour.” Merton sensed a kairos moment, an opportune time for systemic change.
Pastor Nancy suggests we are living in such a time once more. Rather than be overcome by despair, let us seize the moment of grace before us. #GoodSamaritan #BlackLivesMatter #ThomasMerton
