Monday, April 20, 2015



  1. kind of reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:
    "You will never have real mercy for the failings of others until you know and realize that you have the same failings in your own soul" St. Bernard

  2. That's right, If we get to know that Jesus came and forgave my sin's, then we have a personal savior. But if we complain to God about other people's sin, things don't work out so good for us.We just end up with a victim mentality, and that's a big problem today. Nobody wants to hear a complainer, but it's refreshing to hear someone giving thanks.

  3. Flora: I really like Karen Armstrong. She is so wise and thoughtful when it comes to religious issues and the struggles the post-religious face.
