Reconnect One: As the World TurnsAugust 1, 2020
As the World Turns was a CBS soap opera that aired for 54 years. But even that long run was not enough to lay claim to longest or even second longest daytime soap opera. Those records belong to General Hospital and Guiding Light. The very fact that so many people have spent so much of their lives watching fictional stories about ultimately nothing tells us volumes about the lack of focus and seriousness for generations of this great nation. We are where we are in no small part because so many, who had the time to do so much, did instead, so little.
The soaps are right about one thing: we have but one life to live and we get but one go as the world turns. So whether our story has a long or short run, may we live every moment and daily episode of it unto the glory of the One who is alone the real Guiding Light
