Beyond the urge to exhort, assured rejoicing unveils a partial glimpse of the mosaic of world history from origin to destiny. Here: this world, hemisphere, continent, this place. Now: this age, this life, this generation, this day. The natural friendliness of living prophets replaces subterranean panic. Their relaxed laughter opens the heart. The future greets us in those who see the coming of a new sunrise, those ambassadors of the future, those men and women who already are the transformation of the coming spiritual renaissance. Sage idealism joins scientific realism. Knowing history more, we find a wiser path. This is the day which the Lord has made!
