I usually have a couple of hours to kill during my commute to and from work each day, so I end up listening to a lot of podcasts. Today, on the way home I was listening to the latest from the Ethical Society of St. Louis. Each of their platform addresses inspires me to think a little more about how I go about living life, and I find the leader of the society, Kate Lovelady, conveys her thoughts and insights about ethical living and ideals in an entertaining, yet thought-provoking manner. This week was the conclusion of her two part series, “From Vengeance to Mercy”, where she addresses some of the over-arching elements of our society and how they cause us to diverge from a more ethical community. I recommend these two addresses to anyone who would like a better understanding of forgiveness and mercy. And for a weekly dose of thought-provoking, insightful, and interesting topics relating to ethics, subscribe to the whole feed. I sure wish we had an organization like this around these parts!
