Allow me this opportunity to wish you all a blessed and fulfilled 2021. In spite of everything going on in the world there is still truth, goodness and love. Let us keep fighting for these values while living them out in our personal spheres. We may feel powerless to impact things at a global level but and for most of us this probably true. Perhaps this is not our calling, however. By seeking to work for the best wherever we are we may be making an incalculable positive impact.
As George Elliot (Mary Ann Evans) reminded us: ”The growing good of the world is mainly dependent on unhistoric acts, and that things are not as ill with you and me as they might have been is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and now rest in unvisited graves.“
Maybe not the cheeriest thought with which to begin a new year but nevertheless profoundly true, especially as we seek to bring order to a world threatening to tear itself apart!
