Subject: Re: [Humanist] 33.517: Solstice greetings 2019 Dear Willard, Kindly allow me to wish you and our friends of Humanist by recalling one of your favorite quotations, by Mosheh ben Maimon: "Whatever you do, do it only out of love". It is the same concept expressed also by St. Augustine: "Love and do what you will" (*Sermon on 1 John* 4:4-12), as well as by St. Paul: "Whatever you do, do it with kindness and love" (1 Corinthians 16:14-16). I read once that 'kindness is charity in little things'. Through this exercise, sometimes painful since it may collide with our interests, instinctive repulsions, and so on, we may train a habit of love in whatever we do. The exercise, the business of kindness! May our so often distressed world find in 'charity in little things' a way of redemption from the alienation of hatred and divisions. A very happy Christmas and New Year!
