It sometimes feels like the “Apocalypse” is nigh:
For people of many faiths, and even none at all, it can feel lately like the end of the world is near. Not only is there a plague, but hundreds of billions of locusts are swarming East Africa. Wildfires have ravaged Australia, killing an untold number of animals. A recent earthquake in Utah even shook the Salt Lake Temple to the top of its iconic spire, causing the golden trumpet to fall from the angel Moroni’s right hand.
But, as the article points out, wisdom traditions have their own way of suggesting that massive challenges like we are currently facing can help revealing how we might do things better. Let’s hope so.
