Honor the tradition but expand the understanding

Post by johndehlin » 04 Aug 2009, 05:46

A quote for our time:

"Honor the tradition but expand the understanding. That's what religions must do right now if they hope to be helpful to humans in the years ahead."

Neale Donald Walsch
Tomorrow's God

Great quote! Coincidentally, I just picked up two of Walsch's "with God" books Saturday from the library. Not easy, but good reading.

Hey Tom. You owe me a couple books before you read this one, remember?

Yeah. I knew there was something I was missing at the library Saturday. Thanks for the remind. I'll pick them up. "Conversations with God" is comparatively less timely for me.
