Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors. This African proverb most adequately describes the challenging times we find ourselves in — not just in our nation, but as a civilization.

Through a devastating pandemic, global supply chain issues, the undeniable effects of climate change, and the possibility of world war, the world is experiencing a torrential surging storm at sea.
