Pop the bubbles of division

There is an element of inevitability in a bubble: It’s only a matter of time until it bursts. 

Recently, a podcast from The Christian Science Monitor pointed to the overarching need for unity rather than everyone sticking to their own bubbles—such as social media groups, political affiliations, or trusted news sources—in the face of epic national struggles (see “The day the sports world’s bubbles burst,” csmonitor.com, August 28, 2020).

The image brought to thought the iridescent soap bubbles my children and I so enjoy. We watched with anticipation this summer as the wind moved them in unexpected directions, causing them to float up and out of our backyard. Some made it pretty high.
