Appraise the Political Landscape

Spy Out the Land

Spy Out the Land

Keeping up with the news can be a depressing and frustrating endeavor. Sometimes, even I am tempted to just throw my hands and keep my head buried in the sand. So why pay attention? Well, for starters, we can use current events to provide a way for us to direct a discussion toward spiritual things when we are speaking with someone who might not ordinarily be interested in such. Keeping up with current events can also help us to be prepared for changing conditions around us.

And finally, staying appraised of the economic and political events happening in the world can provide timely lessons that we can use as we seek to teach others. If you are determined to make a difference, then you can’t stick your head in the sand – you need to pay attention, and look for teachable moments. I hope the posts that appear on this page will help you do just that.
