And God Said...

Someone asked me this morning how things are going in the political realm.  My usual answer involves a careful, non-partisan response that hopefully satisfies their curiosity.  This morning was different... I paused for a second and said 'and the earth was without form and void'. (Gen 1:2)

It's a strange time in BC politics.  Three parties are looking for leaders. (LIB's, NDP, BC CONSERVATIVES), there are at least 2 recall initiatives underway.  One is approaching what is being reported to be a likely unsuccessful outcome.  The other began last night in Kamloops with promises of remaking democracy. Promises, promises, promises....

There were two interesting news moments today.  The first was that BC is expected to do better than expected in terms of economic growth in 2011.  That's good news.  Immediately following that story, I heard an MLA on the radio who was doing his best to make it sound like the sky is falling over BC.  (It's not...)Suggested reading for the member in question:  'The Little Boy Who Cried Wolf''.  (Just putting it out there....)

I love the fact that when we don't know what the future holds, the God who said 'let there be light' into the darkness and 'let there be order' into the chaos is still RULER and LORD over all.  While the resignation of two leaders within weeks took us by surprise, He knew that it was going to happen and He knows who will replace them.  It's going to be a lot of fun watching Him work it out, even in the lives of those who don't acknowledge Him.
