93-year old Granny D challenges us to consider our challenges and opportunities

O, BE JOYFUL. “Aren’t we privileged to live in a time when everything is at stake, and when our efforts make a difference in the eternal contest between light and shadow, between togetherness and division? Between justice and exploitation? O, be joyful that you are a warrior in this great time! Will we rise to this battle? If so, we cannot lose, for rising up to it is our victory. If we represent love in the world, you see, we have already won.”

-- from Doris “Granny D” Haddock’s 93rd birthday speech, quoted from The Bruderhof
