What is God trying to teach us thorugh this virus crisis? We cannot rely on government, on modernisation or on globilization. There are fundamental flaws in way the world operates - we are over dependent on global trade and markets. Look at the shops - many empty shelves. Toilet rolls stacked high on trollys disappeared quicker than ice in a desert. The system is weak and close to collapse (again). It may not collapse completely this time but there is no doubt it could in the future and God is giving us time to get ready. Is it possible to get out of this system? To go local? To live a simpler life closer to nature and the land. Perhaps to grow our own food, at least semi-detached so that when the collapse comes then we can survive. Many of us are 'work slaves' trapped within the system. I am thinking out loud. I am trapped in the system wondering how to get as detached as possible. Perhaps, it is not possible? Thoughts please!
