Where there is love there is life.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live forever.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. The weak can never forgive.
Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
Strength does not come from physical capacity.
It comes from an indomitable will.
Poverty is the worst form of violence.

8 Children Of Abraham: Part One (Religious History Documentary) | Timeline

23 dec. 2017

Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK

In the post 9/11 world, entrenched religious belief is often seen as a key factor in a “clash of civilisations” – Christians, Muslims and Jews locked into an age-old struggle.

In this thought-provoking three-part series, Mark Dowd, a Catholic who trained to be a Dominican Friar, embarks on a very personal journey to the Holy Land, Egypt, Turkey, Bosnia and the USA to explore the shared roots and deep enmities of the three faiths, and to discover if there is hope in a shared future. The prophet Abraham is central to the three great monotheistic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Yet, despite these shared origins, and the reconciliatory promise to Abraham that “all the tribes of the earth shall be blessed by you”, his descendants have often resembled a squabbling, dysfunctional family. Dowd’s journey of discovery is an attempt to grapple with the big questions: Why, if there is one God, are there three so-called monotheistic faiths? Why do some people abuse religion to demonise their enemies while others build bridges to them? And why have the “children of Abraham” often fallen so short of the legacy of unity that was promised to the prophet?

30 Rick Steves’ Luther and the Reformation

Gepubliceerd op 24 aug. 2017

 
Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther kicked off the Protestant Reformation, which contributed to the birth of our modern age. In this one-hour special — filmed on location in Europe — Rick Steves tells the story of a humble monk who lived a dramatic life. Rick visits key sites relating to the Reformation (including Erfurt, Wittenberg, and Rome) and explores the complicated political world of 16th-century Europe — from indulgences to iconoclasts, and from the printing press to the Counter-Reformation. It’s a story of power, rebellion, and faith that you’ll never forget.

31 Luther and the Protestant Reformation: Crash Course World History #218

Gepubliceerd op 29 nov. 2014

 
In which John Green teaches you about the Protestant Reformation. Prior to the Protestant Reformation, pretty much everyone in Europe was a Roman Catholic. Not to get all great man, but Martin Luther changed all that. Martin Luther didn’t like the corruption he saw in the church, especially the sale of indulgences, so he left the church and started his own. And it caught on! And it really did kind of change the world. The changes increased literacy and education, and some even say the Protestant Reformation was the beginning of Capitalism in Europe.
