Not a Religion By Edith Buxton

I believe it is essential to recognize that God is love in action and not merely a religion; and that I must let Him choose the way in which He will express that love through me. Judging by the way He has created us – and everything else in the world — He must love diversity. Each of our faces is different, even each individual fingerprint is different. Surely then in the spiritual realm we should not expect uniformity either.

I wish I had learned earlier about forgiveness, both giving and receiving it, and the freedom of spirit it can bring. You cannot have a happy old age without it. My daughter once wrote these words: “When a situation has broken down in hurt and bitterness, and disagreement is so deep there seems no solution on earth — there remains forgiveness.
