Given all that has happened today, I will be taking a few days to re-set and re-focus. I just need some time to process.
What we saw this afternoon in our nation’s capital was nothing less than a violent attempt to over throw the United States government by force, at the behest and encouragement of the supposed leader of our nation. I have spent the last 4 years believing - and writing about - the danger that we would end up exactly here. I take no pleasure in being right.
In fact, I am heartbroken.
It seems fitting that tonight is the Feast of the Epiphany. The 3 wise men were given a direct order to find and bring to the mad, tyrant king the savior child. The 3 wise men refused, and went home by another road. They refused to listen to the ramblings of a madman.
Where are our wise men? I pray we find them. I pray there are more than 3.
I appreciate each of you. And I look forward to seeing you again next week. For subscribers, we will finish this week’s 5 things next week. Everyone else, I will see you soon with that complete list.
Thank you all for reading. Go hug your people. If it is your thing, please pray for all of us. If prayer isn’t your thing, send out all the good vibes you can.
I will talk to you all in a few days.
Be well. And keep pounding the rock. It is all any of us can do right now.
