President’s Message – December 2018

Brotherhood is impossible on a world whose inhabitants are so primitive that they fail to recognize the folly of unmitigated selfishness. There must occur an exchange of national and racial literature. Each race must become familiar with the thought of all races; each nation must know the feelings of all nations. Ignorance breeds suspicion, and … read more of President’s Message – December 2018.

President’s Message – June 2018

President’s Message – December 2017

When we are tempted to magnify our self-importance, if we stop to contemplate the infinity of the greatness and grandeur of our Makers, our own self-glorification becomes sublimely ridiculous, even verging on the humorous. One of the functions of humor is to help all of us take ourselves less seriously. Humor is the divine antidote for exaltation … read more of President’s Message – December 2017.

Cousins really. But animosities between the two groups were passed from generation to generation long after the original split. We are told, There existed a traditional enmity … read more of President’s Message – September 2016.
