Nail Biting Time in America

September 17th, 2008 Posted in writing

There’s no question that we Americans are jittery. The economy seems to be in really big trouble and the political campaigns don’t help much because they appear to be involved more in mud-slinging than light-bringing. Commentators are talking about this state of affairs being a wake up call but don’t agree what that call is saying.

Whatever they may mean, I think the call to people of faith is to take a deep breath and, as St. Paul says, learn “to value the things that really matter” (Philippians, chapter 1) and to ponder how seriously we take what we print on the dollar bill — In God We Trust.
