This short talk on gratitude by Curtis Almquist really spoke to me … for today day and for this year and for this time of my life. It is really good and really worth taking the time to listen to. You will be blessed I think as I have been. It helps me to be more a grateful person today.
I highly recommend a recent piece in New York Magazine by Andrew Sullivan.
Everyone has a religion. It is, in fact, impossible not to have a religion if you are a human being. It’s in our genes and has expressed itself in every culture, in every age, including our own secularized husk of a society.
By religion, I mean something quite specific: a practice not a theory; a way of life that gives meaning, a meaning that cannot really be defended without recourse to some transcendent value, undying “Truth” or God (or gods).
