The Harmony Project

Post by Minyan Man » 19 Dec 2016, 08:53

I'm not sure this belongs on this board. I found this to be an inspirational story about harmony & inclusion. A great story for this season.
Take it in, take it in, take it all the way in.
I love it.

If it doesn't belong, delete it.

Thank you for sharing. It brought tears to my eyes.

This is an organization that believes in inclusion, singing, and community service.

A few quotes.
In its diversity a community can find harmony.
Humanity at it's best is what harmony is.
This is not us telling the world how it should be, this is us showing the world who we are.
"It is not so much the pain and suffering of life which crushes the individual as it is its meaninglessness and hopelessness." C. A. Elwood

“It is not the function of religion to answer all the questions about God’s moral government of the universe, but to give one courage, through faith, to go on in the face of questions he never finds the answer to in his present status.” TPC: Harold B. Lee 223

"I struggle now with establishing my faith that God may always be there, but may not always need to intervene" Heber13

There are wonderful examples of humanity all around.
It brought tears to my eyes too.

I heard from my Sister this morning. (Not in the Church) Her son & DIL are considering adopting two sisters from the Ukraine.
They are currently visiting for the next two weeks & then go back. They have decided (already) to go ahead with the adoption.
Stories like these really help me get through this season.

Thanks for sharing MM. There's some real loving of neighbors going on there.
In the absence of knowledge or faith there is always hope.

Once there was a gentile...who came before Hillel. He said "Convert me on the condition that you teach me the whole Torah while I stand on one foot." Hillel converted him, saying: That which is despicable to you, do not do to your fellow, this is the whole Torah, and the rest is commentary, go and learn it."

Anything that is lovely and praiseworthy belongs here.

Thank you for sharing it. True religion and undefiled. . .
I see through my glass, darkly - as I play my saxophone in harmony with the other instruments in God's orchestra. (h/t Elder Joseph Wirthlin)

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.
