Concerning the Upcoming Election

I’ve just started reading the book “Celebration of Discipline” by Richard Foster.  In the foreward by D. Elton Trueblood (don’t know who he is yet), Trueblood writes,

The greastest problems of our time are not technological, for these we can handle fairly well.  They are not even political or economic, because the difficulities in these areas, glaring as they may be, are largely derivative.  The greatest problems are moral and spiritual, and unless we can make some progress in these realms, we may not even survive.  This is how advance cultures have declined in the past. 

No matter who gets elected in November, they will be no saviour.  Our greatest problems are moral and spiritual and change we can believe in starts with me and you seeking God and how He can transform our lives.

Got to run to doctors office.  I’m late.
