"EVERY SHADOW, NO MATTER HOW DEEP, IS THREATENED BY MORNING LIGHT." GERONIMO|PRODIGY
"It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: 'And this, too, shall pass away.' How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!" "I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union." "With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and his orphan - to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." ABRAHAM LINCOLN
I knowing you have much on your plate and I know this is a BIG request. PLEASE put page numbers at top of pages so we do not have to constantly go to bottom and to bottom to get to next page. Thank you for anythging you can do. Rev Joan Mary.
Hi Steve. Firstly I'd like to thank you very much for accepting my friend request. Secondly, WOW! What a brilliant and inspired idea. You have created a truly inclusive site here. I see Liberals,(yes I'm one), mixing with Conservatives, Jews, Hindus, Quakers, Pagans Wiccans, all becoming friends and happily diplayed on one anothers pages. In my heart and soul I firmly believe that this is how God would want the world to be like. Many many congratulations on your wonderful site which I'm very proud to be a member of. My very best wishes. Nicholas
Since you've asked for suggestions, I have one. Please make Beliefnet more inviting to truly liberal and progressive spiritual faiths. For example, your political bloggers are all conservatives. And trust me, no real liberal considers Jim Wallis as our spokesperson. No real liberal wants to end the separation of church and state by reversing Roe v Wade. A few suggestions are: Sponge, William, Sinkford, Rev. Joan Brown Campbell, Rabbi Arthur Waskow, Becky Garrison. I'm sure that there are others. Thik Nhat Han or true liberals who are not Judeo-Christians would also balance your lopsidedly conservative offerings.
Statistically, there were more people who attend church weekly who vote Democrat than Republican when polled in 2004. So how about representing our viewpoints more visibly?
Thanks for your consideration.
Hey, Steve, hope you have a great birthday tomorrow!
