This piece, published yesterday in the Edmonton Journal, has, what might be considered in a few church circles, an element of doctrinal truancy. But, who knows, perhaps that is one of the reasons there’s been so many positive Facebook comments and e-mails. (Well okay, that and being famous among dozens.)
The point I’m making, I think, is that the evolutionary arch of the human heart and mind, is: compassion trumping dogma.
Your article in today’s Journal touched me deeply for its honesty and sincerity. You reflect many of my feelings and views about the less fortunate in this world, and how we deal with them. Hinduism, which is the religion I was born into and I practice, also emphasizes that path to salvation is through Narayan Seva (rough translation: Serve the poor, because they are God).
