The End Of The World

I expect everyone with any connection to the greater outside themselves has heard of Camping and his prediction that the pseudo-Christian Rapture will happen today. It’s had been much too easy join in the smug mockery. I’m reminded this morning that people sincerely believe this, and have made many life decisions based on this. And they’re lives will be abruptly upended. Some will laugh it off, mildly to extremely angry that they were duped. But able to externalize the blame. There are those, though, that will deeply internalize this failure. And our wholesale mocking of this won’t help them through the personal mess they’ve created. Compassion will be crucial. For some, today will be a rude and painful day of betrayal and heartbreak.
