Yes, It’s a Crisis. No, It’s Not What You Think

Updated: Apr 23, 2020

What we face today is not a political crisis. It is not an economic crisis, nor is it primarily a moral crisis. Though each of these plays a role. What we face today is a crisis of imagination.


We have lost our ability to imagine a better world. A world in which giving is more gratifying than grasping. One in which the Spirit’s presence slakes the soul’s thirst more deeply than

shallow sensuality. One in which self-sacrificial love for strangers is more persuasive than fear of the unknown other. A world in which humility and moral courage reap greater rewards than pride and personal power.


This world exists.


But, if we cannot imagine it, we will expend no effort to achieve it.
