Relationships in a World of Individualism

  • rWorld

    The rWorld is about more than Dale Kuehne's book Sex and the iWorld.
    The rWorld is a New England based, non-profit (in formation), that is composed of a growing number of people and organizations from many faith and ideological backgrounds worldwide. We believe that much of the fulfillment for which women and men are looking can be found by enhancing the quality of our relationships. While the individual freedom we enjoy in the West is a gift, the love and intimacy for which humans yearn will not be found in self-serving materialism or hedonism, but in a variety of healthy relationships.

    Professor of Politics and The Richard L. Bready Chair for Ethics, Economics, and the Common Good at Saint Anselm College, Manchester, NH.

    In this blog I'm highlighting signposts of the world in which we presently reside as a means of helping promote a civil, and meaningful dialogue about what kind of world in which we wish to live. I am particularly interested in exploring how might we reconcile the individual good and the common good, and where reconciliation isn’t possible, which should take precedence and why.

Faith and Consequences

Posted by Dale Kuehne on April 9, 2012

I may be an ordained minister, but I struggle with the demands of faith all the same.

Hey there sad eyes.
What’s on your mind?
Don’t look so down.
Give it some time.

You don’t have to be so hard on yourself.
I know the world can be a brutal place.
Please don’t let it steal your smile away.

Cause when the sky’s the darkest,
You can see the stars.
And when you fall the hardest,
You find how strong you are.

Close your eyes, rest awhile.
It’s been a long long day.
So come on baby, baby have a little faith.

Let those tears fall,
You gave it your all.
It’s all you can do.
I’ll be here for you.
And there goes your pride,
Crushed on the ground.
Sometimes it takes a wall to tumble down,
For you to see who’s gonna stick around.

Cause when the sky’s the darkest,
You can see the stars.
And when you fall the hardest,
You find how strong you are.

Close your eyes, rest awhile.
It’s been a long long day.
So come on baby, baby have a little faith.

Sometimes it gets worse before it gets better yeah.
And it takes so much to be brave.
Sometimes it feels like forever.
But when all the lights begin to fade.

And when the sky’s the darkest,
You can see the stars.
And when you fall the hardest,
You find how strong you are.

Close your eyes, rest awhile.
It’s been a long long day.
So come on baby baby.
And have a little faith.
Have a little faith.
Ooh, oh, ooh.
Have a little faith.
Have a little faith.
