From Disconnection to Connection

Trinity: Part 1 From Disconnection to Connection Tuesday, May 7, 2019 I’m convinced that beneath the ugly manifestations of our present evils—political corruption, ecological devastation, warring against one another, hating each other based on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or nationality—the greatest dis-ease facing humanity right now is our profound and painful sense of disconnection.… Continue Reading From Disconnection to Connection

The Illusion of Separation

Death and Resurrection: Week 1 The Illusion of Separation Wednesday, November 14, 2018 Hopefully we begin life as “holy innocents” in the Garden, with a conscious connection to Being.

Scarcity or Abundance?

Economy: Week 2 Scarcity or Abundance? Thursday, July 5, 2018 God as Trinity reveals an economy of grace—overflowing love.

Made for Love

What we call… Continue Reading Made for Love
