Community Group Week Four: Immanuel Kant, 1724-1804

Bruce Horst

This week in our community group we watched a short video on the philosophies of Immanuel Kant, which can be viewed here: Kant was an early Enlightenment thinker . He was raised in a Christian household and saw positive benefits of Christianity, but he was concerned that as religion became less important in the world and was supplanted by reason, that humanity would lose sight of the...


The Bus To Heaven and the Sound of Angels Barking

Bing Limousin

"Of course we would all be naked", Shepp stated, so anybody who might wonder if he hadn't thought his idea through would know otherwise. He went on to qualify his premise; that a naked soul is not like a naked human body-thank God for that! "Besides," he further explained, "when an immortal soul climbs aboard the Heaven Express bus, the other riders have more important things on their soul-minds; they.




THE EASTER RETREAT PRAYER Please, kindly forgive me, Jesus, for having been delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law.

Please, save us with Your Raising to life! Son of Man, excuse us for having...

Spring Cleaning Madness

Ella Camp

Some days I don't do something- I just stand there- some days I don't just stand there, I do something. On this morning of an energetic day, (I had just polished off a bowl of oats with strawberries and bananas) I experienced a burst of unusual energy and decided I'd clean out the overstuffed, bulging hall closet. I approached the door with some trepidation, afraid that stuff would spring forward like a jack-in-the-box...


Perception Can Lead To Understanding Or To Anger

Susan Thom

Perception doesn’t always mean you are on the same page as someone else. There are so many exceptions to the "understanding" meaning of the word. Every day we must go through perceptions. One may look out the window, see that it’s cloudy, and decide to take a raincoat. One’s sister, on the other hand, perceives that it’s going to be sunny and warm. Their perceptions of the weather differ. Their...


The Rowboat: (Part 7 - King of the Mountain)

Jack H. Schick

I don't remember a whole lot about Christmas the year we got our rowboat; like what gifts I got or if we did anything special during the holidays. I do know we had a big, elaborately decorated Douglas Fir tree in front of the living room picture window, that my mom baked thousands of cookies to share with friends and neighbors, that she sang along with the constantly playing Christmas records and that the house smelled like pine...

You had to swim in it...



Transforming Our World - one conversation at a time.

Zen Benefiel

Invitations Over the last few months I've been participating in a number of conversations online as well as on Zoom (a video platform for online meetings). The nature of the conversations is about learning how to listen and respond from the present moment. The folks involved are from around the world, most of them involved with U.Lab and functioning professionally as entrepreneurs, business owners, change agents (interim...


Sometimes there are alternative facts

Joel Hirschhorn

Except for certain constants in physics, chemistry and some other sciences there really are alternative facts for myriad answers to questions. The recent brouhaha over the use of the term alternative facts by a Trump White House staffer reveals more than media bias. It reveals utter stupidity. As someone with a doctorate in science and engineering, a former full professor of engineering at a major university, the author of five...
