What are we willing to give up to live into our religious principles? In 1925, Mahatma Gandhi enumerated 7 social sins that in his opinion were the cause of a corrupt society and community. Worship without sacrifice, was the 6th of the 7 social sins, and is the mark of religious fundamentalism, xenophobia, and religiosity. We can choose to live a worshipful life, one that is full of simplicity and a generosity of spirit. The worshipful life is the spirit that will help us on our long journey towards wholeness and justice. Speaker: Rev. Jaelyn Pema-la Scott, Buddhist community minister
