InstaThoughts

I’m so overwhelmed. Not necessarily a bad thing. Being in an uncomfortable space, learning hard things, being unsettled… This helps me grow. But it is overwhelming.
.
.
I’ve been watching @huntersonprime. It is blowing my mind. I can only manage two episodes a day because it makes me think and feel so many things.
.
.
Then, in listening to the @cities_arts podcast and hearing the Hebrew phrase “tikkun olam,” literally “repair of the world, ” as a vocation of God’s people… Very powerful, especially in combination with watching Hunters.
.
.
It is devastating to see the hatred that fuels genocide still so alive and well in the world. It is devastating to relearn history (#OperationPaperclip) and fear we’ve learned nothing. It is devastating to feel powerless.
.
.
But I am not powerless. I have a voice and compassion and courage. I have a calling. I have choices. God, give me strength to repair the world.
