Truth is Neither Universal Nor Absolute; It’s Cultural

Some things just outrage me. Yesterday, on NPR, I heard a 12 year old talk about why she thought “illegals” should be turned away from the US borders. She spoke about how these bad people were bringing drugs and disease into our country.

I’ve known, worked with, and been friends with quite a few cult leaders over the years. Most of them don’t even realize they are cult leaders. All of them believe they are doing “God’s” work.

Perhaps the most dangerous of all the beliefs that cults operate from is

Top 5 Relationship Myths

With tears tumbling, we comforted our kitty gently, thanking her for the love she brought us as life slipped away from her frail, tired body. My girlfriend and I have been dealing with the loss of Sydney for a week now.

Trauma has the potential to destroy intimate connections and we have both been acutely aware of this. To ease our minds, and help diminish the effects of stress, we hiked a lot. On one particular hike though, we argued over a misunderstanding we had.
