Some people believe that a higher being is in charge of our lives who will see to our good no matter what. Then there are people who use terminology to reflect a position that god lives within us and we are the authority of our lives. As more of our society rejects the God of Judeo-Christianity, the questions when does life begin and when does it end are answered in terms of independence and autonomy.
So I end with an adaptation from Garrison Keillor.
Be well, do good, and spread Grace wherever possible.
