Really I must insist. What was your last sin? Seriously have you caused harm lately?
Love is not a choice if we are to be a part of humanity. We do not get to choose “no love”. So what do we say with our face?

Once upon a time humans got outraged because of social injustice or harm to others. This was good. Now people get outraged to rid themselves of guilt. The more the outrage the less guilt.

We have a strange social notion going around seemingly telling us that we must be pissed off in order to be normal. We try a first person approach here to look at the happiness index and opposites.
We are so fortunate to live in this time of changing reality. Reality in the general is changing almost daily. We should not hold on to reality, for that which we try to hold onto is gone in a flash.
Strange subject for a sermon we know. We do not want to refuel your anger, we want to re-energize your ability to listen. Let us analyze this together, granting that my view and your view are honored.
We will speak of hate and love here. We will speak of speech that is hateful. And we will speak of speech that is loving. Please remember that the opposite of love is not hate but rather apathy.
K through 3rd grade is a very special time to take the time to make learning fun. We are not talking about making homework “not horrible”, we are talking about making homework fun. In this house homew
Can there be a peaceful attack? Can we defend our views through peace? Can we be rational and angry at the same time? Can we be rational and peaceful at the same time?
Society runs itself. It is like a perpetual motion machine. Remember that pink bunny for a battery commercial? And it is interesting for this sermon that he is called the eveready as society is also.
Why do we just accept one persons view over the other's? If women are from Venus and men are from Mars is one a superior race? Where are the most germs and why do we think public toilets are dirtiest

Great!! From what I see out here in desert coastal California we are kicking butt on recycling and minimizing waste of any sort. I love it. But are we neglecting the same for our Spirituality?

It is wise to spend our time wisely and in love. Take a little time to join us here on the issue of time.
Some think that a concept of human rights make things right. Sorry but they do not. It is not the availability of a thing, like food or water, that is important it is the cost.
How erect do we stand? Do we stand well enough to lift another up? This is about what you do. Do you do what need be done? We cannot lift another up if we are in recline or slumber. Sober up.
Howdy friends. Excuse me if that is too informal. "If a name or title holds me up rather than my love, please, please let me fall" ED 2010. Be yourself in your love of God, not somebody else's vision.
