This month's Journal opens with a Frontlines section on ethics. Ethics in universities. Ethics in medicine. Ethics in business. Here, people who lead extraordinary lives talk about the ethical commitment that keeps them going, and that keeps them from giving up. Colleen Douglass ends the section with "Ethics—who sets the standard?" Suggesting that it is not we who set the standards for endurance or behavior, but God.
"Reflections on September 11" offers a tribute to innocent victims and families around the world who have faced the evil of terrorism—and squeezed new spiritual strength from doing so.
You'll also find lively pieces on the arts. Author Karen Ray answers the question "Where do you get your ideas?" Amateur jazz musician Ed Blomquist writes on improvisation in music—and in life. Soap opera star Kathryn Hays talks about her spiritual journey.
