Away Message

I'm at the DC conference of the Network of Spiritual Progressives this week and away from the computer. No more entries till next week. In the meanwhile, check out the network. Read The Left Hand of God. Get spiritual. Be progressive. TTFN.

Another Day, Another Agitation

John Kenneth Galbraith, who died last month, once said "The emancipation of belief is the most formidable of the tasks of reform, the one on which all else depends."
Sounds like a call to rethink, to get a new mind for a new time.
On the other hand, William Sloan Coffin, who died days before Galbraith, was fond of saying that "you don't think your way into a new way of living; you live your way into a new way of thinking."
And then there was Funkadelic, who sang "free your mind and your ass will follow."
Head first or not, we need some liberation these days from lousy belief systems and unjust actions.
