Are You There, Humanity? It’s Me, Marcia.
Are you there, humanity? It’s me, Marcia.*
We’ve tried talking before—the whole lot of us. I am a theologian, after all. What in the world would I be doing if I weren’t trying to talk to all of humanity? I come from a particular context, and context does limit perspective. But, this time, I am actually really hoping you all can hear me out.
The truth is, I’ve been concerned about you, that’s all of us, for a while now. We can be such a self-destructive bunch! It’s breaks my heart, and I know you probably feel it, too. War, violence, hatred, abuse of power, greed, and self-loathing—the list goes on and on. We hurt each other and we hurt ourselves way too much. It’s a story as old as time. And it’s our story.
