the Empathy List #46: Insurrection? Already?
What happened to the New Year?
Hello, friend. Liz, here.
Maybe you’ve heard. (Who hasn’t?) Our 45th president isn’t happy. Can you blame him? After all, he was blocked from Facebook and Twitter. *roll eyes*
Oh yeah, and there was insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on the day of the confirmation of electoral college votes that will cement, once and for all, Joe Biden as the next American president.
Maybe you, like me, have been tempted to dig around for the receipt to 2021. But friends, this is what we’ve got.
So let’s use this strange season. Let’s study ourselves, our nation, and our lives closely as the new year begins.
When we zoom in, do we diagnose justice or injustice? Do we see fear or love? Do we notice bigotry or welcome?
It’s worth asking those questions on a personal as well as a corporate level because we’re stuck with each other. And rather than simply rage and whinge and prosecute each other (often rightly…), the call on every person is to repent.
