Carlie Harford, 'Identity in CRISIS or in CHRIST?'

That you can be lonely in a crowd, maybe especially there, is readily observable. You can also be lonely with your oldest friends, or your family, even with the person you love most in the world. To be lonely is to be aware of an emptiness that takes more than people to fill. It is to sense that something is missing which you cannot name.
'By the waters of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion,' sings the Psalmist (Psalm 137:1). Maybe in the end it is Zion that we're lonely for, the place we know best by longing for it, where at last we become who we are, where finally we find home.
We will yet climb this mountain
with weary hands, to that warm summit,
where we will breathe in the view together.
That’s why people don’t trust the media… No one is actually talking about the news; they are talking about what they think the news is. There is no news channel that is saying, ‘This is what happened. Draw your own conclusions.’ That’s the problem. We have made this country so bereft of critical thought and ability to process knowledge that the issue is going to be to get people to think about issues for themselves.
