My Credo

The sum total of the Gospel message is, "You are loved. So is everyone else. Act like it."

Never be afraid to see anything, feel anything, think anything, or say anything, and never make anyone else afraid of it, either.

It is as unjust to sacrifice your own needs and interests to another's as it is to sacrifice their needs and interests to you. The greatest justice for one is equal justice for all.

The entire universe is a gift of grace. You did not earn or deserve a lot of the bad things that happen to you. You did not earn or deserve a lot of the good, either. Make the best of it.

Your life is not what happens to you; your life is what you make out of what happens to you. Make your own life; don't buy one off the shelf.

It is all much more like a system than like a bunch of discrete parts. Everything affects and is affected at the same time. You are influenced by many things. Take responsibility for what you do, and you can learn what influences you and how to influence back at it.

Tell your own story. You are the one who has the final responsibility for it, you are the one who has the final say about it.

faith, hope and love

My Philosophy You are loved; so is everyone else; act like it. This is the sum of the gospel.
What Gives Me Hope Every day I get a little bit of good news. Good and bad are both going on all the time. Focusing on the good doesn't mean you refuse to see the bad; it just helps you deal with it.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Make everyone (especially decision-makers) start the day getting a half-hour neck massage.
What/who changed my life and why The Cauldron by Arthur Miller, because it showed how cowardly and cruel people can be AND how brave and compassionate people can be. It is always our choice, every moment.
What Bugs Me critical thinking isn't widely taught, civics isn't taught in school any more, using God to get your own way, complaining without action, Deliberate Ignorance, injustice
