Our Broken World by Susan J. Reinhardt
That question followed on the heels of the experience I mentioned in my earlier interview. As I meditated on the voices of the forefathers fading like dying echoes, I considered what it might be like to live in an America that was no longer the home of the free and the brave.
Free speech, freedom of religion, the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are aspects of life in America that we all hold dear. People will resist major changes, but the slow erosion of our rights can go almost unnoticed.
The story of a family, who experienced life unhindered by excessive control and now facing anti-Christian bigotry at its worst, flowed onto the page. Someone once said to me my story was too mild. Yet, I knew it would impact those of us accustomed to worshiping as we see fit, speaking our minds, and making decisions based on what was best for our families.
Recently, my mom’s baby sister, passed away at the age of 80. She’s with Jesus, and we know we’ll see her again. Death has a way of emphasizing that life is short – a mere blip in terms of eternity. I want my life to count for God’s Kingdom.
The Lord’s Prayer talks about, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” This world is broken – not just our country. Jesus came to bring life and life more abundant. My desire is that my words would be containers of life, pointing the way to the Life Giver.
Will I always write stories like this? I don’t know, but I had to write this trilogy. Whatever the future holds, I know that my life is in God’s hands. We’re truly pilgrims passing through.
