Cups of Coffee and Changing the World

MF0P6sdwQa23M24F8yUi4AI have a few deeply held beliefs. The first is that God is love and love can change the world. The second is that we are God’s hands, his ears, his eyes, and if we want a better world, we have to make it. Not as some collective, not under some nebulous world government, but each of us, individually in our own way.

I sent this mug with the statement “Be the change you wish to see in the world” to my daughter her freshman year of college. She left it with me when she moved to New York. I am not the change I wish to see in the world. I am a dragon sleeping. And I know the world will never get better with twitter, angry voices, and people hating on one another and blaming entire groups for the actions of single individuals. And I want to burn them all down some days. And so I write. As much to save myself as to save my world.
