Living in treacherous times has always been the case for every individual.  Stresses, pressures, inadequacies; all loom large in our current-day hurry up and wait scenarios. One reason we can't even keep up with remembering seems to be that there is so much more information to forget these days.

As long as I've been directly engaged in ministry, I remain ultra-sensitive and sympathetic to the struggler.  Community tends to not notice such pain until it is found to be in their lap.  Otherwise, we are proficient at offering critical assessment as to how the cow really should eat the cabbage.

So...I remind you that a herd of very great and wonderful people have headed off to work one more time; one more day.  These will do their best to be amiable as well as efficient.  But just beware that too many have slipped into your workplace wearing a mask of happiness when behind it is nervousness and confusion.

May we be attentive; taking no one around us for granted.  For smiles to be genuine smiles; the more the merrier.  But be sensitive to those who are wearing their obligatory happy face while tears flow within.  Do well...my friend.  Cheer all on. People need us.
