The Rise and Fall of Everything

We are born to die. Nation’s rise and fall. Everything in the material world is subject to corruption, entropy and decay. So what’s the spiritual lesson to be discovered here? On this Memorial Day Weekend we will remember those who have died in U.S. military service, and reflect upon the help and healing we can […]

A Mother’s Love

Motherhood: What a job! What a calling! What sacrifice!

Citizens from Another Country?

In the words of the old spiritual, “I am a pilgrim and a stranger, just travelin’ through this wearisome land.” Playing on this theme, Rev.

Come prepared to make a […]

Beyond the Veil: A personal view of Islam

Beyond the headlines and the fears there are millions of ordinary people trying to live their lives and find some solace and meaning in this religion. I have a very personal view of Islam since my first husband was an Iraqi veterinarian and I lived here in Baghdad from 1963-1970. In these difficult times we […]

What’s it Worth to You?

The Original Peoples of our land consciously acted with their ancestors and descendants in mind, living not just for themselves and their own individual gain in the present, but as ancestors-in-training for those who were yet to come. Such a view runs counter to the rampant selfishness and self-centeredness that threatens to overtake and dominate world […]
