I have felt the last few months that the most important task isn't opposition--as important as that is--but reweaving the moral and social fabric which has deteriorated. Which means I, in some ways, viewed Trump as a symptom and not the disease, the cause. This is the motivation behind much of my recent reading, writing, preaching, even the podcast. How to restore morality, decency, faith, society, and democracy.
Today I watched this sermon which David Brooks delivered at the National Cathedral and it expresses so much of what I've been thinking and feeling. This sermon gives more shape to my thoughts and encourages me at a point when I was doubting the direction I had chosen. I encourage you to watch it.
