red straw star

We must recognize that we as individuals are to blame for every social injustice, every oppression, the downgrading of others and the injury that man does to man, whether personal or on a broader plane.…God must intervene with his spirit and his justice and his truth. The present misery, need, and decay must pass away and the new day of the Son of Man must dawn. This is the advent of God’s coming. This is the very essence of Christmas: that he comes to make all things new and pure, that he comes to establish his kingdom here on the earth (Rev. 21:5).
