James Saxon: Cardiac Hill
Every year more than 50,000 runners participate in Atlanta’s Peachtree Road Race, a race with an easy start that quickly becomes more difficult when runners reach “Cardiac Hill.”‘
As a society, we have reached a similar increase in difficulty as our elected officials and business leaders debate how best to proceed, and people from all walks of life struggle to cope with the realities at hand.
As Christians, we have a calling from God to encourage the disheartened and help the weak, as well as rejoice, pray, and give thanks despite our present circumstances. Our cultural “Cardiac Hill,” the pandemic, is an opportunity to answer this call faithfully.
