Patterns of destruction and corruption are at the heart of many problems today—from the abuse of power in politics to the conflicts creating famine in Africa. When solutions require a redirection away from destructive behavior, is it reasonable to expect that we can make a course correction?
This question is rooted in the fundamental and timeless inquiry of what we actually are. If we believe that humanity is stuck in repetitive cycles of selfishness, greed, and dysfunction, it may be difficult to believe a change of course is possible. But discovering our being as God-created gives a basis for effecting healing change.
