I had planned to spend the month of December blogging about Christmas. Kind of get back in the groove. But somehow writing about my favorite Christmas carol seems irrelevant in light of the latest terrorist attack in San Bernadino. I may get back to what I intended. I hope I do.
You look at social media and it seems everybody has an answer. Either gun control or everybody arm themselves. Bomb ISIS into oblivion, boots on the ground. Or maybe be nice, apologize for all our perceived past sins. Maybe if we had the right president…
Some say we are suffering for abandonment of our Christian heritage. Maybe so but we can’t turn back the clock. We are where we are. Saying Merry Christmas instead of happy holidays or praying in school or reciting the Pledge of Allegiance is not going to solve the problem, at least in the short term.
So what do we do? I think the only answer is prayer, prayer with the sure knowledge that God will answer. Something tells me, though, that the answer we get may not be the answer we want.
And I have no idea what I mean by that.
