Hello, good people and welcome to this week’s Stuff They Never Told You! I hope you are doing well and that you’re beginning to enjoy some fall weather. There is something special about autumn—the transition from hot to crisp weather, the falling leaves, the energy of a new school year, football, pumpkin patches, pumpkin spice everything. I love it. Texas is still hot but it is good enough now that my family has brought back our post-dinner walks/scooter rides and we’ve started taking more meals, books, and other activities outside. It will only get better from here!
Well put. It needs to be said, and I hope your work inspires more people to think about this. The role of religion and the sacred has never gone away. It's only transmuted into different things (for more thoughts on that message me). Human beings are fundamentally creatures of the divine, and taking away the connection to the transcendent will never result in anything good for society. That is what I believe.
I commend you on writing on a subject that seems to be taboo to most. I was told early in my life that there are three things we don't talk about, religion, politics, and how much money you make.
The first two, religion and politics have become something that it certainly seems best to stay away from. Our society has gotten to the point that we only want to speak our beliefs and never listen to consider other points of view.
