A Thanksgiving offering . . .
We have much to be thankful for, and despite our current struggles, in the end we move forward, haltingly at times, but the future lies not in the mirror but on the road before us.
In 1853 Theodore Parker said,
“We cannot understand the moral Universe. The arc is a long one, and our eyes reach but a little way; we cannot calculate the curve and complete the figure by the experience of sight; but we can divine it by conscience, and we surely know that it bends toward justice. Justice will not fail, though wickedness appears strong, and has on its side the armies and thrones of power, the riches that and the glory of the world, and though poor men crouch down in despair. Justice will not fail and perish out from the world of men, nor will what is really wrong and contrary to God’s real law of justice continually endure.”
May it ever be so.
