"It's 2009. Do You Know Where Your Soul Is?"

Bono has a good column in the NY Times that you should check out. His writing style in interesting and his insight is daunting. "Redemption is not just a spiritual term, it’s an economic concept." Don't skip the last paragraph!

  1. We all "soul search" where religion is concerned, but one thing our priest said recently I connected with is-"your faith or religion is how well you treat others around you-your family, co workers, a homeless man in the street, " and that your soul becomes stronger every time you do something kind for others, say something kind or just be there for another human being. Need not to say to those who know me, I love Bono!!!!! :)

  2. Thanks for steering me to that article! I read your blog daily because sometimes it makes me laugh (like Darth Vader videos), sometimes it introduces me to new ideas (like Wordle), and sometimes it just makes me think a little harder about the world around me (like today). It's good to have a voice crying out in the wilderness of Des Moines, Iowa, creating a ripple in the pool that stretches all the way to Minnesota and beyond. Keep writing!

  4. "...past reverence for creation, through bewilderment at the idea of a virgin birth, and into the far-fetched and far-reaching idea that death is not the end"

    This is a great piece - and sounds the same call to action from sources as varied as the micro-lending of Grameen to the US State Department.
