January 22 topic:  Defining characteristics of good religion. 

According to Rev. David Usher there are five defining characteristics of good religion:

  • It is about how you live, not how you demand others must live.
  • It is humble, it recognizes its human limitations of knowledge, insight, and experience.
  • It leads to peace, not violence; love, not hate; inclusiveness, not division.
  • It leads to a life in which the sacred and the secular are intimately interfused.
  • It can laugh at itself, it rejoices in the gift of life.

What do you think?
So bring a cup of coffee/tea and come speak your mind and share your views in a safe, non-threatening atmosphere.
