Review & Commentary

  • Geoff Merrett

    It is extremely challenging to love all people all of the time, but I agree it is what we all need to try to do. Thanks for your organisation and the new life it is breathing into an ancient religion, which in many ways has become stuck in a time warp, but which has so much to offer if dogmatism and simplistic assumptions can be put aside.
