Eclipse and Apocalypse

As in every age, there are signs and portents that reveal cosmic struggles on scales beyond comprehension: Masses of people influenced by evil and hateful ideologies and those toeing the straight and narrow path of right and just resistance, wondering if violent counteraction is indeed justified; the lunar orbit crossing in front of the sun, cutting a swath across the lower 48, like┬áthe scar between North and South that has existed as long as Europeans have violated this soil. The same imperialistic fight over how to exploit resources, both natural and human, has raged on since before the dawn of civilization, when Cain murdered Able over the acceptability of labor’s sacrifice. What are the fruits that will please the Lord and with what attitude must they be given? These are essential questions that people of faith must continually wrestle with.
