Someone stole our attention. Oh, did they really?

We live in a world where our entire lives, almost everywhere, are totally invaded by advertising. It’s not yet in the underground caves explored by speleologists or on the sides of Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa or Mount Everest (but who knows if it will not be there when I attempt to climb Mount Everest for…

Forgiveness – essential humility

Archbishop Desmond Tutu (1931–2021) and his daughter Mpho Tutu van Furth focus on our fragile humanity, the good and bad that we are all capable of, as the entry point for forgiveness: We are able to forgive because we are able to recognize our shared humanity.

Divine Utterance

How nature reveals the hand of our creatorBy Deborah King Breathe in. Breathe out. What do you hear? You hear the sound of your breath. What does your breath sound like? Breath sounds like breath.
