“A closing thought: God is in charge of history. He asks us to work, to try, to pour ourselves out to make things better. But he is an actor in history also. He chastises and rescues, he intervenes in ways seen and unseen. Or chooses not to.
Twenty sixteen looks to me like a chastisement. He’s trying to get our attention. We have candidates we can’t be proud of. We must choose among the embarrassments. What might we be doing as a nation and a people that would have earned this moment?”
A surprising quote from Peggy Noonan in the Wall Street Journal. Read Democracy’s Majesty and 2016’s Indignity: After Tuesday, life will go on, and things are so bad they almost have to get better.
