MAKING IT BETTER: The Struggle To Be Authentic In A Deeply Inauthentic World!

I am a member of a seminary of Ordained Ministers who are part of the wider community and I have been shocked, appalled and I daresay even frightened at the recent ferocity of discord that has recently erupted amongst them. We are all part of a face book thread of communication and through our conversations […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Mob Mentality, Collective Grief…And The Trump Impact!

In Countries, in offices, in homes and everywhere else in between, across the globe, everyones’talking about it.

MAKING IT BETTER: ‘The Root Cause Of Mental Illness Is Sin’…..REALLY?

MAKING IT BETTER: Dealing With Family Quarrels And Estrangements, Can Be Akin To Grieving

Family quarrels are bitter things…They’re not like aches or wounds, they’re more like splits in the skin that won’t heal because there’s not enough material – F. Scott Fitzgerald Holidays such as Christmas and possibly Easter are a couple of the main times in the year when families get together. This is also the time […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Living Your Best Life!

“Many people have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose” – Helen Keller Apart from the obvious economic drain, even devastation to many people’s lives, there are other more pertinent repercussions that prevail in the strive to keep up with the […]
