Labo(u)r Day reflections

Read the following this morning as American awake to “labor day”:

“This is the big lie the world tells us: that the universe is connected by trade agreements, electronic banking, computer networks, shipping lanes, and the seeking of profit—nothing else. Whereas this is the truth of God: all creation is one holy web of relationships, and gifts meant for all; that creation vibrates with the pain of all its parts, because its true destiny is joy.”

Good to wake up to words like this since the world seems increasingly fixated on profit rather than the prophetic.
