Grace Anne Stevens

Discrimination in any form does not come from a loving God, or a loving person. Discrimination occurs when people travel the path of fear. This path is not freeing, it is confining. It hurts both internally and externally. I know this from the decades of hiding my own truth and living in shame and fear of discovery.

What Is Strength?

Umar Zulqarnain

Strength is to let go, to let be, to simply exist. Strength is to know that we are nothing and that we have no strength. It is to know that strength is in God and is not acquired but provided.

I realize that when I use the word God, there's a good chance I'm stepping on all kinds of land mines. Is there a more volatile word loaded down with more history, assumptions and expectations than that tired, old, relevant, electrically charged, provocative, fresh, antiquated yet ubiquitous as ever word God?

Philip Goldberg

I don't pay much attention to surveys about how many people believe in God; they don't reveal much about people's actual spiritual lives, or how their beliefs manifest in reality. They don't even tell us what people actually believe, because they seldom ask, "What do you mean by God?"
