New Wineskins

I suppose, if I’m honest, one of the things I like most about Jesus is that he was a rebel. Throughout the Gospels, we learn that Jesus did not always follow the rules. He didn’t fast according to traditional Hebrew law, nor did he cow-tow to those in charge just...

Man of Mankind

Sometimes, I feel like someone who is on a great expedition. As we have taken this journey this month of exploring how I’m working through understanding my relationship with God, the trails we’re blazing are not trails that are new or untrodden by previous...

Christ Consciousness

Today, I want to share with you what I feel is perhaps the most powerful aspect of our existence. This is the third of four parts of what I am working through as a way of understanding my relationship with God. If you recall, two weeks ago we talked about both the...

The Divine Idea

One very important, very essential part of anyone’s path to spiritual fulfillment is that of contemplation. Our ability to know God begins with our ability to understand our Divine relationship with God. I remember when I was 13 or 14 years old. We lived on a...

Overcoming Fear

One of the ways my life has been blessed is that I don’t have many fears. Oh, I’m not crazy about dark places where spiders can hide and having fallen once from a ladder, I don’t get too excited about taking down boxes from the upper shelves in our garage. But,...

A Glass of God

 I enjoy reading Marianne Williamson. And one of the reasons is that Marianne can bring a concept of Truth into my consciousness with a clarity and brevity few others match as well. Her prose is not elaborate or lengthy, yet it is packed with inspired truth....
