I had a really interesting conversation with a mate about the weird news and strange economic times we’re going through. He was sharing how all these weird animal deaths (see map below) that are seemingly unrelated, mixed with the change in the position of the dollar in global economy, and the arrival of naked picture scanners at the airports, all felt like the opening scene of a movie that ended in apocalyptic bad stuff. A little investigation turned up this other weird news from Canada where a river turned bright green for a bit.
All in all, a collection of oddities and unsettling thoughts. But my conclusion is this: whatever is the cause of the animal deaths, be it poison, climate change or a general air of negativity around the globe, God is sovereign and nothing that is going on is outside of his rule. I’m not denying the weirdness. I’m just not freaking out.
