Many of us may be troubled and anxious with the political and economic developments in our country and beyond. Some are closer to the happenings, others are more distant.
While writing the piece on My Malaysia Day the other day, I overheard a conversation where someone is totally in distraught and despair due to the plunge in the share market.
When I was walking back into my car, a friendly smile accompanied advice to stock up some food.
And yet, there are many of us calling people to be cool and calm while being cautious and critical at the same time. For me, having a center where I can refocus is crucial in the midst of any kind of storms. It’s kind of like having Jesus sleeping in my boat as the waves are tossing and turning on the outside.
O God, you have bound us together in a common life. .
. Help us, in the midst of our struggles for justice and truth, to confront one another without hatred or bitterness, .
. and to work together with mutual forbearance and respect; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
