Some Initial Thoughts about the Insurrection at the Capitol


On January 6, 2021, insurrectionists stormed the U.S. Capitol building. They broke into the halls of Congress, carried Confederate flags, stole items from the building, and smiled for photographs.

In this podcast, the first such episode I am recording on the Substack platform, I share some of my initial thoughts about the terroristic actions at the Capitol.

I discuss how I’m processing this event on three levels: emotional, historical, and spiritual.

These are unique times that call for a unique response. I hope to put my specific suggestions in a forthcoming written post.

In the meantime, take care of yourselves. We are going to need every ounce of health, strength, and energy for the days ahead.
