History never looks like history when you are living through it. (John W. Gardner, late U.S. cabinet member)

Sometimes commentators say that we’re living in historic times. In reality, of course, all times are historic times—some more so than others, perhaps. If you look back over your lifetime, you will realize that some of those times you remember were historic, indeed. That thought should challenge each of us to live as if we’re involved in making history somehow. Live with purpose!

Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other . . . and working together with one mind and purpose. (Philippians 2:2)
