From Catastrophe to Opportunity

F

Building on The Age of Belonging

David Brooks called it out as clearly as I’ve seen it – “the rampant individualism of our current culture is a catastrophe.” A catastrophe is a powerful word – conjuring images of a town in the American heartland, completely shredded in the aftermath of a tornado. Except the damage to us isn’t as tangible as someone looking at their worldly possessions ground into matchsticks – it’s in our souls. While our bank accounts may be intact, our houses still standing, we are broken inside – lonely, disconnected, fearful, and depressed. But, like a catastrophe, we are given an opportunity to look at the bits that remain on the foundation, and have optimism that we can rebuild better than before.
