There’s a lot going around social media these days that is emotional, angry and aggressive. Trump has created a pretty huge divide in his country, which has certainly affected anyone and everyone tied to social media in any way. It’s frustrating to say the least, and feelings of helplessness quickly arise. What does one do? How does one handle such negativity? Do we check out completely, or do we take time to allow the Holy Spirit to check our own hearts as we indirectly sit in the midst of it all?

As culture moves all around us, often beyond our control, how do we approach our faith in the process? Do we look for ways to make faith a comfortable security blanket, or do we willingly – and sometimes hesitantly – pick up our cross?

“I think there is no suffering greater than what is caused by the doubts of those who want to believe. I know what torment this is, but I can only see it, in myself anyway, as the process by which faith is deepened. What people don’t realize is how much religion costs. They think faith is a big electric blanket, when of course it is the cross.” Flannery O’Connor
