The Golden Rule

A local church

has a sign,

“Come if you are spiritual

but not religious.”

In conversation,

in polls taken,

many people define themselves

as spiritual but not religious.

Perhaps this is a trend,

but for each person

there may be individual explanations

or definitions

what that means.

At a time when

world news bring

daily reports

of religious conflicts,

disagreements,

horrendous violence,

what does religion mean?

Christians, Jews,

Muslims.

Each religion

seems to have

conservative,

traditional, liberal and many variations and

definitions within each.

During hundreds of years of history,

religions have been the

source of conflict.

At other times,

the values of religious spirituality

have helped people live

in peace.

Conflicts, killings, destruction

make news.

Will the human race find

the qualities which

help people

live and work together?

Every human being

can

treat each other person

as

they

want

to be

treated.

The Golden Rule

is a

good place to begin.

Peace.

Love.
