Wake up calls are sometimes subtle and sometimes obvious. A continent on fire, people dying, homes lost, wildlife decimated. To me, this comes into the obvious category.
We have seen that a leadership vacuum cannot be filled by a part time pastor and that in these times sterner stuff is needed for our nation to see the truth surrounding us.
Where was the national plan, the standing fire fighting force, the machinery, the planes, the medical and food supplies, the realisation that our world is changing and that if we are not to lose it then we must change too?
For there comes a time when silence is nothing but a betrayal.
