America is in the midst, not on the verge, of calamity. There is a spiritual crisis because we are losing connection with the source of what is wholesome. Television, poor nutrition, the lust for entertainment, general dumbing down and pre-occupation with material gratification to name a few qualities that hallmark calamitous events.
Lawrence - I agree 100% and this calamity is a GO(O)D thing! Whispers have not been sufficient to wake up our society to it's increasing distance from the Divine...so let the thunderous events carry on until we all get the message. No Fear!
America has always been on edge. In the 60's there was Vietnam, racial tensions, environmental concerns.
Calamity can create positive change. But, It is important to focus on the positive things and to help others.
Follow your intuition and let God lead your life. He wants us to prosper and be happy.
What if calamity isn't about what we do and don't do, but simply a natural event that destroys everything?
But what if it is about what we do and don't do?
Another good discussion! I agree with both of you Jeff and Lawrence. Let's combine the two. What if a natural event cause caos and then it becomes about what we do or don't do? It seems to be a very popular topic for authors and readers currently.
