Wednesday of Hope – It Is Time for Healing

I know these are scary, uncertain,  hurtful times, but I really wish  people would stop talking about  what a trash fire the world is.  Our world is a wounded relative,  not a hopeless ruin,  and we’re called to help heal  the injuries we’ve inflicted  on our kin.

The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.

– Wendell Berry
