1. Baltimore Examiner: National Day of Prayer
“It almost didn’t happen, the National Day of Prayer. Today marks the 60th anniversary. Traditionally this day is held on the first Thursday in May. What are you doing to observe this day? Unlike other nationally observed days, prayer does not invite big celebrations. It invites open hearts. It doesn’t matter what your religious beliefs or spiritual traditions, one can always put aside a moment to lift the heart and mind to prayer.”

2. Betsy Hardy: I Believe: ‘The Climate Crisis is a Spiritual Issue’
“I believe in our capacity to transform society, mitigating the climate crisis to prevent a climate catastrophe — and faith communities are an essential part of this transformation in Vermont, across the country and around the world.”

3. Benjamin Hale: Were You Born Selfish?: An Interview with Frans de Waal
“Richard Dawkins has declared that humans are “nicer than is good for our selfish genes.” Emory University primatologist Frans de Waal argues against this popular picture of evolution as a Hobbesian wilderness of selfishly competing individuals, where life is “nasty, brutish, and short.” De Waal focuses his research on the social behavior of primates, studying questions of culture, altruism, morality, and empathy.”
