Higher morality calls us to a greater hope, but the only way is through understanding, faith, and a respect for the authority of God’s word. Without it, what purpose is there for achieving a higher morality?
After receiving the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize, Wangari Maathai said, “In the course of history, there comes a time when humanity is called to shift to a new level of consciousness, to reach a higher moral ground. A time when we have to shed our fear and give hope to each other. That time is now.”
Fifteen years have passed since this thought was expressed and it is just as relevant and needed today.
