Goodwill To All from the House Of Strays (Peace, Greetings and Blessings For This Season) 

I've never been much of a scholar, and certainly not a student of comparative religions. As a youngster my family eschewed the ritual Sunday worship service, and although we didn't - to the chagrin of the extended family - partake of the weekly social/educational/soul saving opportunities presented by our local church I was taught, by example rather than rote, how to be a good person.

The little thinking I have done regarding religion seems to point to basic similarities between them (discounting fundamentalists): that we should treat people the way we'd like to be treated. That's all I'm trying to impart to my children - that and the concepts of racial, gender and social equality.

I'm hoping, as I do every year about this time, that 2018 will bring enlightenment to us all regarding these basic human rights. Perhaps a little consideration. Maybe some common sense. 

And I'm hoping for you that the new year brings you happiness, health and prosperity - however you choose to define them. 

Love and peace to you all from our House Of Strays....

(for those who take strength from spirits other than the holy, I offer you my tune Find My Way from the CD "Up We Go")

    Best wishes to all who abide in the House of Strays! We adore you all. And among the similarities you noticed, that "golden rule" you teach your children is represented, with only slight variations of style, throughout all the world's major religions. We are ONE my friend. We need only to act accordingly.
