Our business,The Producers Guild, has a good record in some areas, and a bad record in others. There are many well-intentioned people trying to change things.

When people do bad things intentionally, they know they've done them. But it's not to be cared about.

It's a primal, natural response. — Julia Roberts

Everyone receives spiritual formation, just as everyone gets an education. The only question is whether it is a good one or a bad one.

This is an indispensable aspect of developing a psychology that is adequate to human life. — Dallas Willard
