We didn't see it coming!

 brexit 100

By Pastor Bob DiSalvio

Odds makers, the world’s financial markets and the experts were certain Britain would vote to remain in the European Union. The “markets” were up for days before the big “Brexit” vote. When the votes were counted all the prognosticators were wrong! The vote wasn’t even close. Few people could read the tea leaves of discontent brewing in the heart of so many Britons. This event is one of a long string of history-making events that have rocked history and caught all of us unaware:

Sunday December, 7, 1941; the day Japan bombed the sleepy naval base on Pearl Harbor. Because we were unprepared our country entered WW II with a decimated naval force. By God’s grace and the grit of millions of Americans we were victorious.

With the end of WWII, we missed the start of the Cold War, as a menacing Soviet bear gobbled up Eastern Europe sealing it for decades in what Sir Winston Churchill labelled as “The Iron Curtain”.

We missed the fall of the Soviet Union symbolized by the taking down of the Berlin Wall. Thinking the Soviets dead, we missed the rise of the new Russia under Russian president Vladimir Putin whose vision is the re-birth of the former Russian Empire.

From Despair to Stupidity

despair 1 200

By Scott Affleck

'What is love? What is creation? What is longing? What is a star?' thus asks the last man, and he blinks. -- Friedrich Nietzsche

When I was attending college for art I became rather dismayed by the development of art in the past century. I wondered how we got from beautiful meaningful art of the past to the banal silliness of postmodernism. At that time, a friend gave me a copy of Francis A. Schaeffer's Escape From Reason. Schaeffer's book offered a profound understanding of the development of culture. Schaeffer was concerned that Christians were unaware of the new environment which make it difficult to communicate the truth of scripture. He traced the development of philosophy to the arts and then to mass culture to show how it shaped the world-view of the 1960's. Although Schaeffer was writing at the time of the emergence of postmodernism, things have changed drastically in the last 48 years, I'm certain that line of despair is hardly reflected in the current culture, rather, I find a self-consciousness culture which escapes through ironic detachment, instead of facing the conditions of alienation.
