I want to exchange ideas with each of you, personally, about our world
Imagine a member of the United States Senate --- actually, imagine any politician anywhere --- saying something like this:
“Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people.
“Before you tell me how much you love your God, show me how much you love all His children.

"I talk to everyone all the time. The question is not to whom does God talk. The question is, who listens?"
Early in Conversations with God-Book One we are told that God communicates with us most often through feeling. Feeling is the language of the soul.
