I saw a shirt last week that said “kindness is my religion.” It made me wonder — do we need to believe in kindness to be kind? What other acts or behaviors do we feel strong enough about to call them our religion? For me, it’s the story of my grandfather that has guided my values. But maybe for you, it’s a bad experience, a friend, a book — that has influenced your deepest convictions. This week our writers explore what their core beliefs are, including their thoughts on the afterlife, personal growth, and family legends.
