Imperceptible Speeds, Meeting Human Needs

Time does fly...and we along with it.

We've begun another 365.25 day trip around our favorite star. We can't feel it but the Earth is rotating at 1040 miles per hour. The Earth is zipping along its 600 million mile long orbit of the Sun at 67,000 mph. Our solar system is circling the center of our Milky Way galaxy at 483,000 mph. The Milky Way itself is clipping along through the universe at 1.3 million mph. There's a lot going on up there.

Here on Earth, at velocities we can more easily perceive, it's been another difficult year for many. The challenges may not be over but if we work together - as friends, social networks, families, work teams, congregations, and communities - we can make 2011 a better year for everyone.

Godspeed, one and all.
