p.s. 2nd best review came from
“This Pink-Haired Narcissist Has Something To Teach Us About Being A Good Person”

p.p.s. Also featured on this week:

“A picture of John Styn’s grandfather, Rev. Caleb Elroy Shikles, with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., had a huge impact on John Styn’s life growing up. It made him realize that great people are not “them” – they are “us.” In this funny, emotional TEDx talk, Styn shares his grandpa’s lessons of living life in intense gratitude and the joy that comes from gifting. We all have a choice every moment of our lives. Are we going to focus on the (ice cream) cone or the (dog) crap?”

Miracles in every moment

“Yet what is more awesome: to believe that God created everything in six days, or to believe that the biosphere came into being on its own, with no creator, and partially lawlessly? I find the latter proposition so stunning, so worthy of awe and respect, that I am happy to accept this natural creativity in the universe as a reinvention of ‘God.'”
