    This was President Obama’s speech yesterday: Thank you. Thank you, Governor. To all the families, first responders, to the community of Newtown, clergy, guests – Scripture tells us: “…do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away…inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is...

    This week, one of my projects is talking about the Hare Krishna mantra. There are unlimited ways to describe it, talk about it, and define it. I've been trying—for a long time—to figure out how to introduce it in our Intro section so those who don't know about it might begin to appreciate and want to try chanting it themselves.

Rabbi Michael Lerner wrote last week about Chanukah, describing it as “the holiday celebrating the triumph of hope over fear, light over darkness, the powerless over the...

    I have been a bit surprised at the level of media interest in the Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy. From all over the world reporters have descended on London, crowding the streets outside the private Edward VII hospital where Kate was admitted two days ago with acute morning sickness. Congratulations are certainly in order, although traditionally not offered until after the safe period of three months has elapsed. The child  - now known to be a girl – will be third in line to the...
