Ground Zero Bible - 9/11 Artifact - Joel Meyerowitz (Wed 11 May 2016)

[Lucky enough to have stumbled across this today ..]

Joel Meyerowitz was given a "found" bible by a fireman while he photographed Ground Zero in the months following the 9/11. He marveled that the Bible was preserved intact to a lump of steel, and even more, that it was turned to a particular passage from Matthew 5 (KJV) which says:

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also” (vs. 38-39).

Joel notes ..

"Of all the pages in the Bible that it would be open to, that was remarkable,"
A remarkable communicator, spoken, written and photographed. Thanks Joel, a timely message.

Words - The Story of Telling (Mon 12 Sep 2016)

The Story of Telling on Words:

Our words communicate much more than the messages we want people to hear. How we use them shapes our thoughts and character—it shows people what we value and conveys the truth about who we are. Our every word has the power to provoke or reassure, draw people in or push them away. We get to choose how well and how wisely we use them.
