The Awesome Value of a Healthy Religion
Our faith is an important, if not the central element in the lives of most of us.
But simply having faith is not enough. What we believe must be, to use a well-known trilogy, healthy, wealthy and wise.
Healthy, by holding fast to the basic beliefs in the sanctity and beauty of life for everyone.
Wealthy, in valuing people over possessions and by upholding others of all races, colors and creeds as children of God;
And Wise in being open always to new insights about the beauty and wonder of God's world.
