Living in Challenging Times

Many of us are questioning how to cope with the many changes that are happening simultaneously like climate change, the economy, family structure and wars. We have been given instructions through the ages from different sources on how to live a well examined life, i.e.:

1. The Bible Ecclesiastes Chapter 3 

A right time for all things

2. The Dhammapada 129 (Buddhist Scripture)

All tremble at violence, all fear death, putting oneself in the place, one should not kill nor cause another to kill.

3. The Bhagavad Gita (Ancient Indian Scripture)

The Gita provides a prescription for happiness and success in everyday living. It talks about the battle between man’s good and bad tendencies. 

4. Quakers: Quakers provide tools to assist in adapting to the changes.

Queries, the revised English Bible and silent worship.

Let us come together and have a conversation on how we are coping with the changes.
