The Day After

The entire world is talking about the death of Osama Bin Laden. We’re experiencing emotions ranging from joy to sadness to thrill to confusion to vitriol to caution and about 1000 other emotions covering the map. We’re discussing what it all means. We’re discussing what comes next. We’re wondering how everything fits together. We feel as if we’ve hit a milestone and we’re also unsure of the new road we’ll travel.

It does seem, however, that no one hasn’t heard. It seems that no one lacks an opinion. It seems that no one is unaffected.

What would you say to someone who is completely unaware? What would you say to someone who raises the question, “What are you talking about?

Would you say, “Are you the only person in the world who doesn’t know what just happened? How can you not know?” Would you try to make them feel the way you do?

Jesus, in everything we’re feeling today, please walk with us. Help us to see you as we continue the journey. Help us to notice our hearts burning within us as you continue to reveal your love and your peace to all.

Peace be with you.
