In a crisis, our best nature surfaces – but we seem unable to sustain a sense of true community and remain in the heart of compassion for more than a few CNN weeks at a time.
PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (PRWEB) November 13, 2015
In “A Fresh Cup of Tolerance,” subtitled “Universalism: The New Religion of Tolerance” (published by Balboa Press), author Dr. Tom Norris provides a guide to a new Universalist Theology of tolerance. Pulling from centuries of global religious traditions, it serves as a call to action for those seeking a world of loving relationships and mutual respect.
“With over seven billion people on the planet and a lot more coming, learning to live (love) together is essential to our survival,” Norris explains. “In a crisis, our best nature surfaces – but we seem unable to sustain a sense of true community and remain in the heart of compassion for more than a few CNN weeks at a time.”
Norris advocates for the best in humanity – the idea that people can bridge all ethnic, racial, gender, cultural, national and religious barriers and genuinely live in a sustainable, true community. “We are entering a new world and a new era, where the old ways of viewing ourselves, God, each other and the world just will not work in the 21st Century. Universalists have the ‘Good News’ as well. We are all brothers and sisters!”
“Our neighbors don’t just live next door, but in spiritual terms, they are everyone that makes up our world community. Embracing Green Theology and the outlook of our native ancestors, the book goes so far as to suggest that our neighbors are not only humans, but all members of our world family, including the animal and plant nations.”
