Merry Christmas everyone! We put aside a crazy, tumultuous year and celebrate Christmas in this week’s boralogue. John shows that even though there’s little hope in the things of this world and forces align to keep us divided, we do have hope in Christ. Things of the earth have no eternal value; our true value is found in Jesus. So when we come together this Christmas with family and friends, let’s love each other and engage in civil conversation.
We have predicted that the U.S. is headed off of a fiscal cliff in the very near future, but what could that look like? Author and journalist Lionel Shriver shares the plot of her new book “The Mandibles,” which describes one possible downturn in our economic future. She’ll answer the question: is there a remedy for the little guy?
Coinciding with Christmas Eve this year is the beginning of Hanukkah, a Jewish remembrance of, among many things, heroes of the faith. Rabbi Yonason Goldson (www.yonasongoldson.com), Jewish History Teacher in St. Louis looks at the true meaning of heroism: selflessness and doing the right thing in service to something greater than yourself.
John’s quote of the week:
“We have two fundamentally different worldviews that are fighting against each other, struggling for control. At the very same time, we are sliding toward a series of major crises that neither of those two sides seems to mention.”
