Child’s Hope (Yet)

Armodoxy for Today: Child’s Hope

I had an interesting conversation with a young girl the other day, about the number of fingers on certain drawings. This 10-year-old had come with her mother to volunteer for the food distribution at the shelter. She had brought with her some paints and brushes for the kids there and we began to discuss the intricacies of drawing the human hand. I noted that cartoon characters have four fingers, and she was quick to one better me, by telling me about a character who had three fingers on his hand.

I asked who was the character? She answered, “It’s science fiction. It’s not real, yet.”

Indeed, that “yet” implied hope and faith in the future.  That “yet” is what keeps people dreaming, believing, and creating.

We haven’t visited another planet yet. They haven’t discovered the cure, yet.

Our world hasn’t achieved peace, yet. Dream, believe and create. Today’s one-minute for standard time.

“Out of the mouth of babes hast thou ordained strength,” cites Jesus. (Matthew 21:16)

St. Vartan: Battlefield Arizona

Next Step #299 – February 27, 2014

St. Vartan’s battle is one that gets defined in 2014 as we react to religious intolerance. Fr. Vazken brings home the message in this timely and relevant broadcast. Homosexuality and the tolerance of Christ – as we are all one in Christ – it’s a believe or not statement. Looking for parody and the folk songs to open the dialogue about change and revolution. Watch out debutantes! The power of language along with a quick run to Guitar Center with Gor – all in this episode.
