Date:
July 27, 1958
Description:
July 27, 1958. Running time: 43:00. Thurman discusses having a reverence for life. Unity of life is an important aspect of life, and "life lives by consuming life." Man tries to restrict a reverence for life by defining life as belonging to the human race. This is used to remove feelings of guilt. People take from others lives to meet their needs. But actually, people should strive to live fully and righteously because how one lives is the act and experience for their atonement and redemption for using up the life they were given by God.
