Joy in Our Time?
The Best of Times; The Worst of Times
John W. Ritenbaugh
Commentary; #1030c; 11 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, reflecting on the opening sentences of Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities and M. Scott Peck's The Road Less Traveled, focuses on the concept of joy—a quality William Barclay suggests is quite independent from worldly circumstances. This kind of joy is especially needful when we note Peck's observation that "life is difficult." While we were formerly taught in public school to love our country and democracy, children are now taught to despise our country and its institutions. We are undergoing the worst of times, but coming into the best of times because the Kingdom of God is in the ascendancy.
