Fun Fact

In 2012, almost 1 million accounts were added to Twitter every day.

Whether Todah or Eucharist or any of a hundred ways of expressing gratitude for Life and Creation, today is a day for Giving Thanks.

You see the ugliness and anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim hate.

But you also have the beauty of a Muslim woman seeing a Jewish family being attacked and putting herself in harm’s way to protect them. 

This woman is a shero ❤️✌🏾

Quoted @hyfreelance

In Islamic teachings, breastfeeding another baby X number of times makes you a mother to them. This woman has parented so many other kids. Bless her esp while grieving. https://twitter.com/SikhProf/status/1196785653935214602 …

Sacrifice for others when suffering yourself... It would seem there's little holier than that.

Quoted @vestal13

A priest told this 13-year-old that there would be no more altar girls in his parish. She, her family and the Reardan parishioners pushed back, and he changed course. https://www.spokesman.com/stories/2019/oct/20/shawn-vestal-family-pushes-parish-to-change-course/ …

Young people serving in religious settings has a long and varied history across the globe. In the Coptic Orthodox Church, headquartered in Egypt, a child plucks the name of their new pope out of a vessel placed under an altar.

North Dakota has become the 11th state in the nation to incorporate Sikhism into its Social Studies curriculum! Thanks to @sikh_coalition for their hard work on this issue. https://sikhsiyasat.net/2019/10/14/north-dakota-becomes-11th-state-of-usa-to-teach-about-sikhi/ …

The more we understand each other, the stronger our community becomes.

Quoted @SimchaFisher

No birth, no ceremony, no body to wash, anoint, and clothe, no grave to dig. We want to have our hands on something. We want to know for sure that the world acknowledges: Yes, the child was here. Yes, the child was real.https://www.simchafisher.com/2019/10/15/not-lost-forever-on-miscarriage-grief-and-hope/ … #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness

Most cultures have a mourning ritual for the dead. Many do not for the loss of a pregnancy.

Breaking News: President Trump, in a major shift of policy, approved a Turkish military operation to sweep away American-backed Kurdish forces near the border in Syria https://nyti.ms/31SFaaD 

Without commenting on the politics, we'd like to share a couple of points in answer to the question "What is a Kurd?" Kurds are an ethnic group with homelands in NW Iran, SE Turkey, N Iraq, & N Syria. Though most are Muslim, Kurds have a historic commitment to religious freedom.

Theology of the Body is a collection of teachings in the Catholic Church about human nature and the universe gleaned from the human form and condition. For Christians: Which lesson inspires you most? For Other Faiths: What corollary exists in your belief system?

Had a great time today talking business and mission with Josh and Derek at KBG Insurance and Financial Services.

Quoted @vestal13

I mentioned this report from Catholic Charities in a recent column. It's an excellent, factual, humane look at homelessness from the organization that has likely done more than any other to take on the most difficult parts of the problem. Give it a look. https://online.flippingbook.com/view/555903/2/ 

Homelessness has many faces. Mostly our neighbors. @CCharitiesUSA reveals that 80% of Spokane's homeless persons are from here. And almost 50x as many of our neighbors are one disaster away from winding up homeless themselves. CC responds with compassion and human dignity.

Lt. Sandeep Dhaliwal was a beautiful man who was beloved by so many. Rest in power, brother. ❤️https://twitter.com/courtneyabc13/status/1177748049713664001?s=21 …

In a recent conversation with a member of the local Sikh community, I learned the turban is not just worn as a practical means of managing long hair but as a visible sign to the world: "This is someone who will help you."

Quoted @SikhProf

At a conference for religion reporters (nerdy, I know). First person I see (not a conference attendee) says: “Namaste! Don’t worry man. I’m one of the good guys who knows you’re Hindu and not Muslim.” Where do I even begin...?

In case the reader didn't know, Sikhism is completely distinct from Hinduism and Islam. It's a monotheistic faith rooted in the teachings of ten gurus. And its holy book is called the Guru Granth Sahib.
