Pacmans

Some people needed a weekly grip of godly empowerment so they could remember not to be pacmans they weren’t born to be. My God is everywhere. His omnipresence furls it’s angelic wings to calm my anxieties and armor my frailties. That’s the difference between my god and your God from the outside looking in. Believers say Jesus sets us free. Wasn’t I?

Public Policy

Religion cannot unite the people. To unite people, we need harmony and for harmony to happen, we can’t have religion as a uniting factor because in religion, too much of differences exist be it about doctrine, practice or observances and when differences exist, nothing gets united. Not unless we learn how to live with the differences by being tolerant, by being accommodative, by compromising or by opening up our heart and minds with a sincere willingness to allow peace, understanding and goodwill to come into our lives. At the extreme end, one can also convert others by duress but is that a correct thing to do? Even if only one religion is left to exist in the end, that religion itself is also divided into many, many denominations. My conclusion is we can’t use religion to unite us. We must choose something else. Like a good public policy perhaps. Or maybe sports.
