. . . You can't really be a leader if you don't connect with those you lead. Leadership is really just a role you assume at will. All it takes is wanting it, setting a direction, and convincing others to help you realize a vision. . . And sometimes it can start with something as simple as picking a...

. . . Just today someone I’ve never met before came up and introduced herself because she’d heard I visited her church when she’d been out that Sunday. It’s weird because I’ve never considered myself someone who could be a community leader, . . . In many ways, I think leadership skills are more str...

. . . One May Enable Their “Abusers,” Foes, Enemies; Whatever Ya Wanna Call Your “Abusers” to Allow Them An Opportunity to Fall on Their own Swords . . .

Good deeds are a way of demonstrating empathy or human connection. Human connection is needed so people aren't fearful of harm or danger from others. I agree. But that doesn’t give others blanket permission to abuse people. The struggle I’ve had in life was being frustrated by living the kind of li...

And I bet, with just a little bit of skillful writing, they’re have another character who partially connects with Bruno and partially conflicts with him.

Now, Thomas and Friends is aimed at younger children like age 4, right?

Yeah I've spent time volunteering and time working, working was much better due to the money :) I would've thought that if volunteering was pleasing to God that something good would've come out of volunteering but it didn't... Except meeting a few nice people... But I don't see them outside of the ...

https://vedika-khatwani.medium.com/vasudhaiva-kutumbakam-fa0afdd29e8 https://miro.medium.com/max/1186/0*GZROSRvv1Ly-3v5Z Yes, I’d say most religions have a version of the Golden Rule.

The Bible doesn’t deserve any more respect than the epic poem Beowulf.

Occasionally, the New World Translations makes the Bible, especially the Old Testament, slightly more palatable (although less accurate). For example, Moses gives orders concerning the Midianites in Numbers 31:17, 18. The New World Translation says: 17 Now you should kill every male among the child...

Blood fractions are considered a matter of conscience. JWs who are really strict, like my grandmother, won't even take those. Blood transfusions still aren't allowed. If a person gets a blood transfusion and it is known, they will be excommunicated and shunned. Just to lay my cards on the table and...

As I understand it. Jehovah's Witnesses are a far out theology not really akin to any other Christian sect. They are comparable to the Mormons, though not particular akin to them either in theology (but as far out as they are). They are similar to other fundamentalist groups as far as theology is c...

Please remember that getting a good job is a numbers game. Be ready with a medium short follow-up such as: “I’m a highly dependable employee who’s very rarely sick. And plus, I find riding the bus more relaxing than driving.” And substitute “walking” or “riding my bicycle” as needed. And yes, be wil...

I’m exploring the concept of a broad range. For example, even if we really click at the beginning, maybe we’ll first have sex anywhere between the 3rd and 12th date.
