|The Golden Rule |
Cheryll Schuette, BellaOnline's Baha'i Editor
If piety meant more of us paid closer attention to the ways in which we all agree, there would be far less excuse for religious argument. Here is a common example of that agreement across religions, languages and cultures.

The Goddess and the Thief is the most enthralling novel I have read for a long time. The themes of clairvoyance, a famously cursed jewel and Hindu gods and goddesses are interwoven beautifully in a plot set in Victorian England against a backdrop of Colonial India.

|Why Is The World The Way It Is|
Tracy Webb, BellaOnline's Philosophy Editor
It seems that we are all so afraid of life and making waves, to the extent that we do not speak out when we see atrocities happening to others. Why do we allow the minority to rule the majority? I wonder if we all stood up and said 'no' what differences there would be in the world.

Spiritual Memoirs of a Catholic Priest, By Edward L. Beck. Each chapter contains a scripture passage and personal tales revealing God’s presence in everyday life. Fr. Beck is a member of the Passionist community and travels throughout the country preaching and organizing retreats. I highly recommend this wonderful book and have personally attended several of Fr. Beck’s inspiring parish missions.
