A Christian Case for LGBT Rights

Michael Coren joins The Agenda to discuss why he changed his mind on same-sex marriage.

Via iPamba
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:
I rarely find myself on the same side of an argument with Michael Coren. I adhere to an idea that Jesus was often embedded with people who lived on the margins of his world. What does that mean in today's society? It means he would find it problematic to disenfranchise and other humans because of gender and sexuality.

When I read and hear that Catholic schools have to come up with a policy about gay support groups, I wonder why? If they open the Bible and read the New Testament, they would find Jesus's teachings provide them with insights on how to treat students and others with unconditional love.

Why Do We Feel Awe?

Why Do We Feel Awe? | Leadership and Spirituality | Scoop.it
News stories and social media posts inundate us every day with tips for greater happiness, health, and general well-being. But who has the time to fit them into our already packed schedules?
Recently, though, my research has led me to believe that one simple prescription can have transformative effects: look for more daily experiences of awe. This doesn’t require a trek to the mountains. What the science of awe is suggesting is that opportunities for awe surround us, and their benefits are profound.

We can all be more childlike and less childish. Every day my wife and I and our dog Molly walk the same path (we are blessed with sand and sea, and bush and scrub!) Every day Molly finds something new because her curiosity knows no bounds. She reminds us daily that every moment has never happened before and therefore we cannot help but be in awe.
