Life Apps for the week of 3/22/15 to 3/28/15

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.]

A young African mother

A young African mother

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).




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.
