12/21/12. The end of the world? No. The end of an age? Perhaps. If so, today is the first day of a new age. What if it's the age where we learn how to love each other deeply, imagine possibilities where each person flourishes, and use our resources to make those futures a reality? 

I long for this to be true of us a human race - that we are entering a new era that culminates in a new world. In honor of that hope, I'm posting the first movement of Dvorak's "New World Symphony," a favorite from childhood. The winds awaken our hearts with a yearning for all things pastoral; the brass calls us to the adventure. May we take up the challenge, open our hearts, let our creativity be ignited, and step out with grace.
