A noose and a rope, to throw down and climb out

Sharing a blog post of mine from a Progressive Hindu Coalition I am a part of called Sadhana. I was asked to write a piece about what god means to me. 

----

Occasionally, on Sundays I accompany my signo* to the Redeemer Presbyterian church on the Upper East Side to listen to Tim Keller…

Beyond the Threshold: Investing in Women-led Businesses

no alt
