I finally saw Invictus. Oh. My. God. What an amazing story. I don't think I've ever cried so much during a film. I cried from the opening to the end credits. That Clint Eastwood is a master of cinema! I definitely recommend it to everyone.
For your pleasure, here is the trailer once again:
My pal Gwyneth (Paltrow) sent me an excellent email this morning (aka my GOOP weekly newsletter). In this week's edition she asked three spiritual leaders to give their thoughts on Jesus. I found the three responses pretty inspiring and not at all fire, brimstone, Hell, and apocalypse. I fully admit this isn't surprising considering she interviewed a liberal female Episcopalian minister, Deepak Chopra and the Kabbalah scholar Michael Berg, however, I liked all their points on Jesus.
I particularly liked Berg's entry. Especially when he writes,
"It is impossible for a person to call himself spiritual and yet have anger and animosity towards another human being. The core of spirituality is non-judgmental love."
Well anyways, for those curious minds who don't have the pleasure of receiving GOOP every Thursday, you can read the entire entry here.
