Comment Code of Conduct
(based on Sojourners' code)
I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Ethos online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree—even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)
I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)
I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)
I will hold others accountable by reporting comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)
I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Ethos staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments.  (Proverbs 18:7)

Loving Vincent

 | Karly Michelle Edgar

As adults, we don't often get to experience many moments of beauty and wonder in a world where science explains everything. While not an intentionally religious film, Loving Vincent provides us with a ‘divine encounter’, an opportunity to rediscover a beauty that can’t help but direct us to God.

To profit or not to profit?

Monday, 5 February 2018
 | Hannah Weickhardt

Is working for the profit-motivated sector any less moral than working for the not-for-profit sector? We often think the private sector is only about profit-making; but it can also be an opportunity for altruism, a source of social benefit and a means of human flourishing, meeting material and deeper human needs.

Book review: Alain de Botton, The Art of Travel

Monday, 29 January 2018
 | Rex Dale

Botton describes journeys as ‘the midwives of thought'. Writing with considerable sensitivity to the human condition and unafraid to deal with the rawest of emotions, Botton explores what we do or think about on our travels, how travel might enhance our lives and give us a larger vision, and how to minimise disappointment.

Alias Grace: giving wronged women a voice

Sunday, 21 January 2018
 | Sarah Judd-Lam

Like Handmaid's Tale, Alias Grace confronts the implications for women of class-based, religiously justified power play, and asks what faith offers to those who have experienced injustice. With recent revelations of sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry, domestic violence in the church and the extent of child abuse, the series could not have been more timely.

Dystopia Now: the present reality of Children of Men

Thursday, 14 December 2017
 | Karly Michelle Edgar

Children of Men may feel like an extreme scenario, where a corrupt government keeps its citizens, especially the rich, safe and the refugees out. A government where some human beings are worth more than others. But if this year has shown us anything it’s that this isn’t some dystopian, futuristic movie plot. This is the present.
