Reflection for the Week - June 29

These salient words come from Anna, a character in the Geraldine Brooks story, Year of Wonders, set in the 1600s during the Plague. p. 215

“Why should this thing be either a test of faith sent by God, or the evil working of the Devil in the world? One of these beliefs we embraced, the other we scorned as superstition. But perhaps each was false, equally. Perhaps the Plague was neither of God nor the Devil, but simply a thing in Nature, as the stone on which we stub a toe."
