Where is God?

I am not weighing in on the gun debate. No matter which side of the debate you agree with, I do not personally know ANYONE that resonates with and in anyway condones what took place in New York and Connecticut. I can’t begin to do as well as others in expressing the horror, disbelief, and grief. While I have enjoyed a relaxing fun meaningful holiday, too many have not...too many in Connecticut, too many in New York, too many in Syria, too many in Afghanistan, too many in Iran, too many in Mexico, too many in Burkina Faso…well, too many.

Take it With a Grain of Salt

By Ramona Siddoway
This was a phrase my dad always used. The saying comes from the idea that food is often more palatable with a pinch of salt. Figuratively the phrase refers to not taking things too seriously, that some experiences or comments should be accepted with a bit of skepticism - and a healthy sense of humor.

Prayers for the New Year

By Saadia Faruqi
Welcome to 2013… a brand new year, a chance for new beginnings. Like all Americans, I too want to live in peace, harmony and understanding with the rest of the world. Last year – like the preceding years – was especially tough on peace and prosperity for millions of people around the world and at home, with violence, wars, natural disasters, religious intolerance and so much more. But being human means we all share feelings of hope and optimism regardless of our faith, and so too wonder if this year will herald a change for the better.
