tackling tomorrow today

As we step into a new decade, those who care about the future—about their children and about their children’s children—are taking stock of the trajectory that we find ourselves hurtling down.

If we want a better future now, we have to tackle tomorrow today.

 We do so armed with the unblushing promises of God. For the God of the rainbow and the God of the cross is well able to perfect that which concerns us.
