World Keeps Spinning

It seems like every week I hear from someone else about turning off their TV, ditching social media, or ignoring the newspaper. So many feel helpless before what seems like a ceaseless stream of hostility, stupidity, and gloom. This mood even imbues our fiction. Just yesterday I saw a new show being celebrated as “stunningly bleak.” If we trust the view from these figurative “watchposts” of our day, fear, hate, and loneliness are often more ready at hand than faith, hope, and love.
