Like so many of us, I’ve been spending a lot of time in the last few weeks wondering how our current devastating health crisis is going to affect our lives going forward.
Our lives and our collective life, together, on this planet.
I just came across an article laying out some of Bill Gate’s thoughts about where we might be heading and it sounded very plausible to me.
I’ve always respected Bill Gates for his obvious business acumen and the visionary way he led Microsoft in its formative period.
And I certainly laud Bill and Melinda for taking a wide world view and for their extraordinary philanthropy.
I think his thoughts about the COVID-19 crisis here deserve a very wide reading and I recommend this article for anyone who’d like to read some cogent and well-informed thoughts on where we might be heading.

I am a man who strives to be compassionate and believes that the life and teachings of Jesus still show us how to live and how to treat others in the 21st Century.***I believe that the tide of ugliness coming from elected officials and so-called leaders of the evangelical churches is a tragedy and must be countered with a renewed emphasis on modeling the compassion, teaching and life of Jesus.***I also believe that we have failed miserably in our stewardship of the Earth, our common home, and that this is also a grave failure of our corporate will and must be addressed.***These two horrible trends--the abrogation of the clear teachings of Jesus to follow in his footsteps and our failings to care for the Earth and all its inhabitants--must be resisted, must be countered with clear teachings and committed actions.***That is the mission, the driving force, behind our movement.
