Reflection for the Week - April 10

Life is lived in the midst of goodness and beauty, while at the same time being threatened by evil and ugliness. This delicate truth ebbs and flows.

As the biblical text confirms, and someone like Shakespeare insists, life is venomous; both a remedy and a poison.
