    Posted July 3, 2010 by Deleted Member

    A FRIEND GAVE ME THIS POEM 30 YEARS AGO. I MEMORIZED IT AND HAVE LONG SINCE LOST THE NAME OF THE POET. Does anyone know the name of the author? " If all the music died and music-makers ceased, I think you'd stand and sing a hymn of hope and peace. If nights of doubt and fear against the Li...

  • Life is something to hold dear

    Posted July 3, 2010 by Rev. Richard Villalba-Navarette

    What can we achieve when we only look over what God has given so precious? We can achieve so much through guiding others in ways they need or evidently do not know how at times. It is our responsibility to serve purpose and to add I serve my purpose even while i fight for my life. I am undergoing...

     I want to preface this blog by explaining the view that I am coming from: I believe there is a higher divine power. It exists in ways we can only begin to dream of. I believe that mankind has experienced intense enlightenment with this being, and as time progresses we follow the pendullum...

  • The Gospel of Thomas

    Posted June 25, 2010 by Astrologer Stephen Lilly

    A book many think predates the “official” Gospels. It is certainly my favorite. The following passage is one I come back to often. (7) Jesus said, "Blessed is the lion which becomes man when consumed by man; and cursed is the man whom the lion consumes, and the lion becomes man." ...

    Posted June 23, 2010 by Lisa Herek

    It's not related to Ministry.  Not in any tangible sense. I am a member of a couple of different performance art groups.  It is fulfilling- even necessary to me- to be able to perform.  I feel that drama is a powerful way to illustrate, and can reach people in ways that the spok...

    In the Garden of Eden there were two trees that were set apart and special. One was the Tree of Life and the other the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

    I am hoping to begin a congregation there and maybe one day occupy a space to call home as a church!

You cannot find GOD in a church. So i salute you in your computer upgrades, but i would rather put my faith in...
