RE: Review & Input (R&I), Batch #6, Spiritual Principle a Day Book Project

Greetings! We are happy to present you with the sixth and final batch of review drafts for the Spiritual Principle a Day Book (SPAD) Project. This batch contains 88 entries related to 38 principles, including additional entries on some of the principles you’ve seen in previous batches. You’ll find a few more entries on heavy-hitters like honesty and humility in this batch because we’re filling some gaps in our coverage. In addition, this batch includes principles suggested during review that were not on our original list. Members advocated for solidarity, steadfastness, and others, so we developed entries on these for your review and input.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to offer input on any or all of these. Really!

We ask that you review these drafts—on your own or with other members—and provide input by 13 September 2021. Your input will shape our revisions and provide direction as we finalize the book as a whole. Thank you in advance for identifying what you relate to or find helpful and pointing out where and how the tone strikes you as off. This kind of conceptual feedback is most useful at this stage. We know that word-smithing can be hard to resist. Feel free to offer edits if you’d like, but please let us know what they intend to remedy.
