Wait for God?
Too much suffering has been left unaddressed in our world, dismissed by “God will take care of it” resignation.
What if God is not the cosmic babysitter?
What if the Great Mystery of the universe simply calls all forth,
calls US forth to get up and leave the dust of suffering called evil behind us…
…like God called Moses and Miriam forth to leave Egypt and lead those slaves out of bondage who would follow. (There will always be those who stay behind.)
What if we are NOT supposed to endure familial or systemic evil as if it were inevitable or inescapable?
What if we are to walk compassionately to the edge of suffering while refusing to be sucked into it…
…even needing to walk away from it when it threatens to bury us…
…with courage and full confidence in a Good that is larger than we are.
