gratitude for the media

The key, she says, is to cover the work that is being done, not simply celebrate it. She contributes to a New York Times column called “Fixes,” in which she explores solutions to major social crises like health care and poverty.
She says: “We know that a steady diet of news about violence and corruption and incompetence does create in people: depression, apathy, learned helplessness, stress, all kinds of things. And it’s really bad for the news business. We are selling a product that people find painful to consume. I think anyone would tell you that that’s not a good business model.”

Living Stones

1Peter 2:5-6, 9-10
(living stones building his house; holy priests who listen to God’s Word and obey; Once you were less than nothing; now you are God’s own. Your life has been changed by God’s kindness.)

Does the pearl form without stress?
Does the crystal without pressure?
You are plucked out of darkness
Made holy with the light.
Your core is molten,
In fusion with life:
LIVING STONES.

Foundations of holiness.
Priests of sacrifice
Who listen and obey.
Drowned and rescued.
Asleep and inspired.
Shaken and fortified.
LIVING STONES!
