A way to live:
With friends and partners we really do know how to care and to love. When we fall down, admit – at least to your self – where you have messed up. Forgive yourself, find her or him, and start over. Don’t linger; do it fast…
[A way to live Jeremiah 31:31-34 from the Revised Common Lectionary for 3/22/15; The Fifth Sunday in Lent; although we have not lived as God wants, God will start over, write what is wanted in our hearts, and wants us to start over.]
Wider world – “One Woman at a Time: A Healthy Africa Begins with Healthy Mothers and Children” by Reed Mc Manus of Sierra for 11-12/2014. Africans have the highest fertility rate and the highest infant mortality rate and an outline of solutions that help – “empowering women to make educated family- planning choices is the most effective way.” A similar biblical reference: “No more shall there be in it an infant that lives but a few days” (Isaiah 65:20a). http://bit.ly/1wolUJZ
Spiritual health – “A Natural Fix for A.D.H.D.” by Richard A. Friedman; a professor of Clinical Psychiatry at the Weill Cornell Medical College makes a case for A.D.H.D. to be a matter of brain function that responds to the new but gets bored with the routine; applies to both the young and adults; NY Times 11/2/14. Mental health is a significant factor in spiritual health. A similar biblical theme: “So Jesus took him and healed him, and sent him away” (Luke 14:4) – God wills our health. http://nyti.ms/1wQJKjG
