It was in 1981 Detroit when GM took over the East Side. Or could it be 2013?
This situation is special to me because it was taking place in my neighborhood. My home and the church I was baptized in was destroyed. I recall feeling that whatever the pros and cons of GM building a Cadillac plant, something was just not right on the East side and the whole city. White flight, urban blight. Gangs. Rampant unemployment. Our values were all wrong.
Obviously, GM won. Or did it? Did Detroit win? From the news nowadays, Detroit is making another lousy trip around the same lousy mountain. What do we take from this?
My take is not to place trust in deteriorating riches, consumer advocates, union leaders and certainly not the government.
Jesus outlives corporate takeovers and home dis-locations. He will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory, (Ephesians 3:16)
