What really defines us

We do not need to accept that any disease or problem defines us. But this is more than just disassociating a material problem from a material view of ourselves. Instead, it’s letting our thought be consistently oriented to fully accepting that we are so much more than what a physical body presents.
Article
As we begin to think of healing as spiritual transformation rather than merely the solving of difficulties, transformation will become the purpose of our prayers.
Article
I knew it was right to see my family member as a brother in Christ, as someone who is inseparable from his Maker, divine Love. But it was difficult to see beyond the human sense of right and wrong, of victims and villains.
