Individuals living "transparent to transcendence" (Joseph Campbell) 
would transform the world
in our lifetime.

Of course, transformation
would turn the world upside down,
upset the normal order,
and wreck the economy.

Which is why individuals
and not corporations and governments
have to lead the way.

People have to stop living 
in the service of what they are told
is important,
and start living in the service
of what the people know to be important.

Being right about what matters most
and serving it with our life
are all it takes
to set the world right
and put ourselves right with the world.

What is keeping that from happening
in your life?

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
