"'Not that I live a moral life, but I do expect it of others. Don't we all?'" So says a character in Timothy Findley's haunting novel "Pilgrim." Is this so? Do we expect more of other people than we do ourselves? Why? And how can we change this and become more merciful to others?

It is a question that becomes more and more important in a world that seems full of excuses, yet always quick to condemn the actions of others. Are you ready to ask yourself these questions? Then join Lori and Alice as they explore the themes of self-justification, truth-telling and private morality on this week's edition of your favorite spiritual book club!
