“Born this Way”

Some things are facts — I was born this way. And some things are choices — I choose this path. And sometimes the two get complicated. When does it matter? And how?

“Can Love & Justice Co-Exist?”

Defensiveness is a common response to change — especially when there is a perceived loss. It can be a barrier to growing diversity and to welcoming multicultural relationships. Knowing this, can we (should we?) learn to respond some other way?

“The Purpose of Life”

Emerson wrote that the purpose of life is not to be happy… Come and hear the rest of the quote and share your own ideas. What is the purpose of life? Is it (should it be?) the same for everyone?
