Birth Pangs of a New Age

We live in the time of pandemic – the disease of racism, the growing wealth gap, increasing homelessness and environmental destruction plague us. Along with the Covid virus, these challenges have the potential to lead to destruction or give birth to transformation. In intense periods of personal and societal change, crisis bears the seeds of growth that will bring humanity together or divide us. Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi preached a philosophy of non-violence that was meant to give us hope and guide us through these difficult times into a new age where unity and justice reign. The question is, which path will we take?
