"I have found silence to be medicine. I require a lot of silence to balance the chaos of that clinic in the slum."

The rigors of medical school and practice weigh heavily on the inner lives of doctors. A pediatric doctor chronicles her journey with medicine and the challenge of compassion fatigue.

"If we are going to evolve spiritually, morally, as human beings, we’re going to lean in to caring more, and loving more for one another, and honoring our connectedness, and our oneness, and resist that impulse, that fear-driven impulse to divide and label and react with punitiveness rather than care and concern."

The civil rights lawyer Michelle Alexander is one of the people who is waking us up to history we don't remember – and structures most of us can't fathom intending to create. She calls the punitive culture that has emerged The New Jim Crow, and is making it visible in the name of a fierce hope and belief in our collective capacity to engender the transformation to which this moment is calling.

Our home is Minneapolis. Our heart is with Prince. He was too young to die but, then again, we never thought he’d grow old. He will be missed dearly. In celebration of his life, we offer you “Purple Reign” – a 26-hour, non-stop jam session of Prince’s entire music catalogue played from A to Z, courtesy of The Current. Listen with us.

"What does 'healthy masculinity' even mean? Do we need new words to crystallize the emotional range that guys crave? Women have 'empowerment,' as overused and commodified as it’s become. What do men have?"

More and more fathers-to-be are expressing hopes to have daughters. Courtney Martin explores the well-intentioned feminism behind this desire, and finds that focusing on masculinity might be even more radical.

"What is not acceptable is silence in face of oppression. Boycott if you want, or participate if you want. But do not remain silent in face of injustice."

North Carolina's "bathroom bill" has created quite a stir, a political and cultural imbroglio. Omid Safi on the need to stand up and not remain silent, no matter what action you might take.

"I’m a manic talker, yet over the course of my adult lifetime I’ve never acknowledged another person in one of these rooms — not a hello, not a comment about the weather, not a gesture of commiseration or sisterhood."

Waiting for test results in a hospital can be a solitary event. And unexpectedly quiet in certain waiting rooms. Jane Gross on the silent solidarity of women forged while waiting for the results of their mammogram tests each year.

"Teach me that you live not only in the open field, / the birds singing at first dawn, / but also in the concrete parking lot"

"Sartre said, 'Hell is other people.' He must never have been to a seder. Sometimes, other people are paradise."

The importance of religion to Americans is trending downward. Meanwhile, more people say they experience a deep sense of wonder and awe about the universe. Marty Kaplan, a self-described secular Jew, on the importance of the Passover, the ritual of Seder, and the paradise of kinship.

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”

From John Muir and Wendell Berry to Henry David Thoreau, a celebration of the earth through a granddaughter's memory and the writers who love it — paired with gorgeous aerial photography.

"A lot of experiments fail, and, as every scientist knows, we learn more from those that fail than those that succeed. If you live your life experimentally, the failures will be personal, and some will be spectacular."

Being part of the human race means embracing the fullness of people's behaviors. Parker J. Palmer on the demanding path toward wholeness with Rumi, Merton, and other mystics as his escorts.

"Pope Francis has shown us again and again what it means for Catholics and the Church to accompany others. You meet people where they are. You presume the good in them and hope that they will presume the good in you." –Paul Elie

Pope Francis had an extraordinary eight-day week: issuing a seminal document on love and family, travelling to a refugee "hot zone," and meeting Bernie Sanders in Rome. The common thread: the pope's willingness to accompany people where they're at and walk alongside humanity, whether it be a Syrian refugee or a U.S. presidential candidate.
