And now the calm

Not necessarily a calm before a storm, but just a calm. The mass of political fervor (which I admit I enjoy) has passed. And now we will see how things play out, and we will find that by in large, life continues as it always has.

And now, we can think about theology. Or at least try. I'm sure there will be some new distraction, some other aspect of life seeking to wrest our eyes off of Christ - either some new fear or some false hope.

That ends up being the way the world wends, doesn't it - one things flares up and we get agitated, then another, then another - all the while we pass right by the blessings and wonders and mysteries of God.

As I will say often in November - come quickly, Lord Jesus!
