I'm in

Religion takes a lot of knocks these days, so it's extra nice to run into onto of those bits that remind me why I (somewhat inconsistently) get out of bed on Sunday morning and go to church.  The readings and psalms and Gospel today were generally on the theme of being what my friend Brett calls being "a good man among men."  This is the bit in particular that made me nod and think "Yup.  I can sign off on that":

"He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your G-d?"  

Micah Chapter 6, verse 8

Although, truly, religion isn't required, it does makes a nice framework for me.
