Monday Extra: After Crisis, What Changes?
But when the event spurring the emotional chaos is global rather than immediately personal, it gets more complicated. About nine years ago, I remember seeing a segment on a morning news show about the way people made changes in their lives in response to the events of September 11. With a sudden sense of mortality or vulnerability, people married or divorced; they changed careers. For some there was a loss of faith, while for others a childhood faith became real and powerful again. I've heard more than one story of a call to ministry being heard, or finally acknowledged or acted upon, after September 11.
For this Monday Extra, share with us whether you made a major life change in response to 9/11, or saw others doing it. With the perspective of ten years, were these good decisions? Please share your thoughts in the comments, or if you decide to write a post of your own, leave us a link to your blog.
