43 Forum: Setting the tone for the New Year

The Reverend Dr. Marvin McMickle and I talked about setting the right tone for the New Year.

We discussed  the importance of being spiritually, mentally, emotionally right in order to have a good year.

We talked about the three types of love (agape, eros and philia) mentioned in the Greek language and what each of them means.

We discussed how those types of love are used in all our lives.

We talked about the need for doing unto others as you would have them do unto you, how to stop hatefulness and how to live a more spiritual life with understanding and tolerance at the center.

We took a close look at the concepts of atonement, forgiveness and the search for peace in a troubled world.
