Thank you

Hi Sarah with an h,

This is a profound reminder about the power of coming to terms with who we are on the inside and how that can affect what we have on the outside to give. I did not know about this letter and I thank you for sharing it.

Ubuntu,

Wendy

thx, Sarah

HI - thx for posting. I remember when the Southern Baptists made that proclamation in 2009. We just shook our heads... Really?

I've been reading a bit of history re. the shift from paganism to early Christianity lately. It's shocking to read 1st-person accounts of the time re. the outright conspiracy with which Christianity sidelined women and purged all other religions, including burning the libraries at Alexandria, Egypt, where 4 religions lived together in scholarly peace. Same old, same old. But it is a new age, I actually believe that, & new ideas are taking root. Things are shifting. Look at Pres. Carter! I always liked that man -- he has true integrity.

hugs & blessings.

Quand nous venons à partir de la volonté à l'amour, pas la peur, nous allons voir le meilleur et le plus élevé se matérialise
