Winter Solstice and Poseidon

As winter darkness falls upon us and the promise of Spring and longer days brings us hope, may I wish you many blessings at the close of 2016 and wish you a joyful holiday season.

How can we find hope in the midst of Chaos?

There is no denying it: We live in a chaotic world. A world filled with hatred and division. Our global world grows ever smaller because of social media that reveals our suffering in graphic and unforgettable images. Images that go viral worldwide like three-year-old Alan Kurdi, a Syrian refugee washed up on a beach on the Greek island Lesbos. The child drowned because of fear and hatred in a desperate flight from death fomented by the civil war in Syria.

His death was our death. His death touched the core of our humanity.
