7... Inside Voices - Redemption is such a familiar term in Christianity that we may not always be fully aware of what the word means, and what it says about the human condition and the relationship of human beings to God our Creator and Redeemer. Why did Jesus "come to redeem the world"? Why do we need to be redeemed? From what?
by Helen Hull Hitchcock
15.. Voices Young Writer Award: The Price of Their Faith - The history of the conversion of the Northwest American Indian Tribes to the Catholic religion is a story filled with inspiration and tragedy. Paradoxically, the Indians sought the "Blackrobes", Catholic missionary priests, before the priests sought them.

20.. Bioethics Watch - Love, Health and Homosexuality - Although self-proclaimed experts in our society tend to characterize any concerns about homosexuality as homophobia and even hate, real love does not require approval of everything a person does but rather a commitment to the true well-being of that person.

by Sheila Gribben Liaugminas
30.. Invented "Rituals" No Substitute for Prayer - ... tired rituals from 1970s feminists would not matter, except that they are being used as a substitute for real prayer ...
