areliefworkerToday’s blog title could be seen as a follow up (or maybe a precursor) to yesterday’s topic. It is the title of a quote from Thomas Merton that I thought worth repeating today. I hope you agree.

Humans have a responsibility to their own time, not as if they could seem to stand outside it and donate various spiritual and material benefits to it from a position of compassionate distance. Humans have a responsibility to find themselves where they are, in their own proper time and place, in the history to which they belong and to which they must inevitably contribute either their response or their evasions, either truth and act, or mere slogan and gesture.

May today be one of great blessing for the human community!
