'RELIGARE'

From: Kristian
Sent on: Thursday, July 12, 2007 11:46 AM
'Religare'= (from Latin  meaning to tie or bind.
The overall meaning is 'joining'.
The question is what is it that any FAITH or RELIGION (irrespective of their 
name) seeks to 'unite' or 'join' or 'bind' or bring together ? Perhaps this 
could be a stating point before heading elsewhere..
how about doing  some  home work first ?

Kind regards to each and everyone of you irrespective which faith or 
religion you belong to..
