What's Love Got to Do With It?

Kathleen P. Enright | April 19, 2014 | Impact
I was struck by a question from Curtis Ogden of Interaction Institute for Social Change which boiled down to "What's love got to do with it?" As it turns out, when making a connection between values and practices, love can play a central role.

Did Nelson Mandela Give Us Something to Think About This Easter weekend?

Steve Farrell | April 19, 2014 | Impact
The Easter message focuses on resurrection, the denial of death and the assertion of life. It is about living in the light, moving beyond idols with limited possibility, forgiveness and living our highest possibility connected to the Divine. But is this a message we embrace?

This Easter Don't Play the Monopoly of Persecution Game

Neil Durkin | April 18, 2014 | UK
There's no monopoly on victimhood and no fixed pattern to religious discrimination and violence. Despite what David Cameron says, Christians aren't unique in being persecuted, and nor are they always unblemished when it comes to dishing out the persecution.

There Are Few Places Where the Message of Easter Is as Relevant as the Central African Republic

Dr Alastair Redfern | April 18, 2014 | UK
I have faith in the human capacity for hope and generosity of spirit. Easter is a time for celebration of the triumph of light over darkness and sacrifice into new life. For the children of CAR, who have sacrificed so much, this is our opportunity to give them something to be hopeful about.

No matter how many times someone stands up with blood on their hands and says, "I massacred this Christian because you allow two people of the same gender to marry each other," it does not make it true.
