“Spiritual and Conscientious Groundings for Doing Good Work”

The February 2019 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series (see below for info about watching it through your computer or TCTV channel 22) provides insights and examples for different spiritual and conscientious paths people can take throughout their lives that inspire and motivate them to do good work for peace, social justice, and other meaningful purposes.

We can make our world a better place – and improve our local communities too – by drawing upon intangible motivations to inspire and guide our efforts. Many people do good work because they are moved by motivations grounded far below the merely practical level. People who work hard to help humanity and our environment might refer to conscience – or religion – or spirituality – or other meaningful groundings that inspire and guide their efforts.

Three guests – Selena Kilmoyer, Bob Delastrada, and Carol McKinley – share their personal stories of faith journeys and personal efforts to promote peace, social justice and other goals for a better world. (I also share just briefly how my own faith journey has moved me to do the work I’ve been doing since the 1960s.)

Our three guests live in Olympia now, but all came from elsewhere. Their journeys have been not only geographical but – more importantly – spiritual journeys that have grounded them for their positive efforts to help humanity.
