Is tolerance enough?

Share it Please
Dear Friends,
In May of 1992, the Science of Mind Magazine published an article by Dr. Ernest Holmes, which stated that “Our religious outlook is a universal one. There is tolerance in its concept and inclusion.  The Infinite is all-embracing. We work in harmony with all religious beliefs since each in his or her own way seeks the ultimate Cause, God the ‘Father which art in heaven.’ The one who understands the Science of Mind will be tolerant, kind, and sympathetic.”
If Dr. Holmes were alive today, I wonder if he might consider expanding on the idea of tolerance? I am guessing that he would and that he would invite us, students of Science of Mind, to celebrate the differences that exist between people, religions, and cultures. I suspect that he would encourage us to be grateful for the diversity of creation, to celebrate it, and to be curious about our world. 
Warm regards,  
Edward Viljoen

Let's be a Center that radiates kindness. The Interfaith Council of Sonoma County has launched a program to encourage all of us to be more kind—in our homes, our neighborhoods, our organizations. You can sign a declaration of support that will be delivered to the County Board of Supervisors later this year. You can begin a weekly kindness practice, by following UnitedInKindness.blogspot.com. Feel free to reach out to Rev. Tara at tara@everydaycommunity.org with any comments or questions.

Seeing Good At Work

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
