Some people are compulsively preoccupied with the sounds which pass from people's lips when they speak a word which points to a particular historic person. They alienate themselves (with arrogant and even violent self- righteousness) from those people who do not conform themselves to a prescribed way of passing such sounds from their lips on specified occasions. These people gather in exclusive fellowships which are defined by who is excluded. Other people gather together in inclusive fellowships which demonstrate in a loving way the healing attitudes and creative spirit to which the birth, life and death of a historic person point. They seek to resolve conflicts through forgiveness, reconciliation and the acceptance of all who will come into open and honest dialogue with them about their own experiences and beliefs. They work with Inclusive Holy Spirit to minimize estrangement, alienation, misunderstanding, ignorance, conflict and violence. They know the roots of evil, and work charitably to deprive the roots of evil of alienative nourishment. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
