House divided. Ruins. All that is left of a once great civilization. That pattern repeats itself throughout history as the might of one empire is replaced by the greater might of another empire. A house divided against itself cannot stand.

The United Kingdom is far from united. The UK is set to leave the European Union. Prime Minister David Cameron says that the British people have clearly decided to leave the European Union – yet virtually half of the British people who voted wanted to remain.

The whole of Scotland wanted to remain. Alex Salmond apparently wants another referendum for Scottish independence within thirty months. Nigel Farage declared that Friday June 24th 2016 was Independence Day.

My concern? That independence is actually isolation. That integration becomes disintegration. I know that the European Union is far from perfect. That is true of us all.

A house divided against itself cannot stand. I hope and pray that we are not jumping off the cliff of isolation with our fingers in our ears.
