Living a Whole Life

Hugh Jackman talks about his father:

‘I would recall conversations Dad and I had about his religious beliefs. He was an accountant at Price Waterhouse and I used to ask him whether his religion ever impacted on his work, whether it was ever an issue, or a subject for discussion.

‘He said it wasn’t, because religion, in his mind, was about deed rather than word. He said that talking about religion meant nothing, that practising religion through one’s actions meant everything.

‘And he was wholly sincere. He lived —and lives — his life through a firm foundation of principle and he is both my inspiration and my hero.’

Reminds me of the Green family — the owners of Hobby Lobby — and how they are just trying to run a company in keeping with their beliefs. Providing insurance coverage antithetical to their beliefs would say something about priorities.
