Meriadoc Brandybuck (Merry) and Peregrin Took (Pippin) tried to convince Treebeard and the other Ent’s that their help was needed. They explained the dangers that they were all in. They even explained to the Ents that they were part of this world. It was not until the dangers of the outside world crossed their doorstep that they finally acted.
There are endless allegories that can be drawn from these character archetypes and their situation. We will begin by taking a macro view. The situation that is created by Merry and Pippin is one that all of us at some point in our lives are faced with…to withdraw from the world around us or to engage it and it’s problems. How should we interact with one another, as friends, as family, as neigbors, as coworkers,as countrymen ? What responsibilities does engaging the world bring and how do we handle them?
Entmoot is about who we are in and to the world.
May the Love of Christ be with you always….
…Live long and Prosper
