Reading the news can be discouraging—even demoralizing.
Unfortunately, we cannot convict a single sinner of a single sin or change even one person, much less our culture.
But God can.
To join him, we must submit our lives to the only power that can change the culture.
When Jesus said, “Blessed are . . . ” to launch the Beatitudes, he invited us to precisely such an empowered, transformative life.
