God is the source of everything that is in every moment of time. For this view, affirming that God is creator is not primarily a statement about origination in the remote past, rather, it is a statement about the present dependence of the universe upon God. (72, Marcus Borg, Reading the Bible Again for the First Time)
I worry that I do not do enough. I don't like calling people, so I don't call my senators as often as I feel I should. I don't attend every march or rally-my feminist meetup is more of a social group than an activist one. Where I have found solace is my work for mental health/disability advocacy and in my writing. As much as I love to berate myself, no one can do everything - we must spend time where our talents lie. I did not attend the March for Our Lives last week, but it influenced this writing. The arts are important-writing is what keeps people alive in hope when their feet can no longer lift. Writing has the ability to change people and movements years after the writer has died. Will my writing do that? ummmm, maybe? I only know that I feel my best when I write.
Here is a piece of writing from the writing activity where I work. This week's prompt was the first line in Anne Lamott's book, Grace (Eventually):
There is not much truth being told in the world.
