Send your “Reflection” to Kathleen Kastilahn.
Energy, the presidential campaign and Iraq dominate the news as summer draws to a close. Which one will be front-and-center a year, a decade, a century from now?
I’ll bet on energy.
How much is enough? That’s a critical question for 21st-century Americans. Oil, solar, wind, geothermal or atomic—harnessing and distributing energy are political and scientific issues, which we all have a responsibility to deal with.
Consider another energy question.
How much is enough—for our daily life as Christians? Difficult people and personal shortcomings are major energy consumers. God asks us to be loving and forgiving with others and with ourselves. That takes energy.
But remember, God also offers an unlimited supply of love and forgiveness for every season of our lives and for the years to come.
Fueled with God-given energy, we have enough.
