What is love? Can sex outside marriage still be considered ethical by

Christians and others of "genuine faith" in and service to, God. That is the topic I want to explore whith those of us who believe they have such faith. I have definite (and hopefully clear) thoughts on these matters based on the teachings of the blessed, Lord Jesus, The Christ as well as other Illuminated Beings. But I want to wait. I want to read your comments first, if you will be so kind. Sign in to see full entry.

A Christmas Prayer

Dear God, it is timely that we give thanks for the lives of all the prophets, teachers, healers and revolutionaries, living and dead, acclaimed or obscure, who have rebelled, worked and suffered for the cause of love and joy. We also celebrate that part of us, that part within ourselves, which has rebelled, worked and suffered for the cause of love and joy. We give thanks and celebrate. Amen From Michael Leunig (When I talk to you, 2004) Christmas. {Leunig is the best-loved cartoonist in... Sign in to see full entry.

Christmas for the Homeless

Today I celebrate Christmas as a homeless one. It is easy for me to forget I am homeless since I have such wonderful friends. This, of course, has got me thinking that no one should be homeless on Christmas. It is hard for me to not imagine that every being must have at least one friend with whom to spend Christmas! Yet I know this is just NOT true. Being homeless as I am in the moment, makes me want to seek out the really homeless next time I have a place at Christmas. So, when I have my own...

Christmas and Easter Are Eternally Linked

Only two days till Christmas!!! It does not matter that we have no idea what time of year Jesus was born. It does not matter if Jesus was born in a stable or not. It does not even matter, finally, if Mary was a virgin or not. And it certainly does not matter who showed up to see this miracle birth. What does matter, eternally, is whether Jesus through his Christed life has been born in your heart! Once that happens, a fire will be kindled there that can never go out. You will literally die (to... Sign in to see full entry.

The Price of Unforgiveness will bankrupt you

First, I want to share some of my core beliefs about forgiveness, resentment, healing and just "who the hell we think we are? Who are you really? Are you a lone human being seeking to find your true nature? Are you God having a limiting (and therefore, frustrating life experience)? Are you a lone being trying to be good enough to be saved? Are you a "saved" individual serving others in your new found love? Are you a branch on a vine that includes all beings without exception? Of course, these... Sign in to see full entry.

Have a Onederful Life

God and I in space alone And nobody else in view, “And where are the people? ”O Lord” I asked, “The earth beneath and the sky overhead, And the dead I once knew?” “That was a dream,” God smiled and said, “ A dream that has ceased to be true. There were no people living or dead, No earth beneath, no sky overhead, There was only Myself and you.” “And why do I feel no fear?” I said, “Meeting you here in this way? For I have sinned, I know full well; And is there heaven and is there hell; And is... Sign in to see full entry.

Open Letter to the Bishops of all Churches: A Whole Different Approach

Dear Bishops of All Churches Everywhere, I submit my annual report as representative of the outcast society of the world. I live among and as one of the hidden ones who have no church home (actually, I do, but not within the Episcopal fold), and whom, the church triumphant, refuses to look at or open to. We are not complaining, but rather, merely offering this years report. Many of us awoke this year to the real Presence of The Almighty One. We discovered that we have had nothing from which we...
