About our cover THINKING IT THROUGH

Seeing the world through love-colored glasses

Sometimes a half-hour with our local paper or nightly newscast is enough to convince us the world is a pretty harsh place. But at the very time our view of things may be darkened by images of conflict and depravity, there are stories unfolding around the globe that we don't hear about as much. They tell of mortal courage, unwavering integrity, profound caring, and sacrifice. They show us a better world.

Genuine goodness, wherever it's found, is evidence of our common Parent, the one God, who is pure good. And it points to how natural and necessary it is to open our eyes to the world, to embrace people of other cultures in our prayers, and to recognize God's universal goodness.
