Religion

The longing for holiness is not about wanting to be 'holier than thou'. It is about wanting the love of God to permeate all of our life, and for that love to be shown through our lives to other people.

Politics

Peace making is the creative and positive quest for the well-being of humankind and the planet on which people live.
