This news story may not be anything out of the ordinary, but it could be the beginning of what was addressed in my poem Staying Home (see below).
I was sent an e-mail from a friend in Arizona. He posted a very upbeat poem about how we could spend our time getting in touch with our inner spirituality, our sense of peace and wholeness and holiness.
As I read the poem, I thought, “Maybe.”
From my Reformed theological perspective, I thought, That’s a nice goal while we remain realistic and vigilant about human behavior.
