Following the Yellow Brick Road

I have accomplished something I long dreamed of but never really thought I would do; I am an ordained minister, specifically an ordained Interfaith Interspiritual minister. I graduated from the One Spirit Learning Alliance seminary program one week and one day ago.

The experience was profound, life changing, amazing. I have made new connections and friendships with extraordinary people, for which I am deeply grateful.

Commencement was held at the historic Riverside Church in Manhattan; attached are some photos.

And now, as I embark on a new phase, on a ministry that seeks to express my heart's deepest longing, I ask for help from all people of goodwill and from God.

Great Spirit

"Great Spirit, the Life of all our being, the Light of all our seeing, the Strength of all our striving, the Love of all our living: we rejoice that You are invisible, yet You are round about all of us and in each of us. We would open every window of our being to the intaking and outgiving of Your breath of life, until each one of us is born anew, filled with Your mighty and mysterious presence.”

RIP Bill

WALLS

Eternal Spirit, life of our minds and breath of our being: strangely do we walk though the days of our years, unseeing, unhearing, inattentive, though the glory of life is all about us. We wrap ourselves up in the petty and trivial, shutting out life’s promise. We are afraid of life—and its mighty claim upon us—and we wall ourselves in, thinking to be safe.

Break down our walls, O God! Blow upon the barriers we have built to keep us paltry. Let them all be swept away!

Unity

“we learn to perceive the unity held together by the one Eternal Spirit, whose power creates the earth, the sky, and the stars, and at the same time irradiates our minds with the light of a consciousness that moves and exists in unbroken continuity with the outer world.”

Temples

While God waits for His temple to be built of love, men bring stones.

Fred Phelps Sr.

"No part of me feels glad over the reported death of Fred Phelps. A sad & bitter life has ended, leaving behind a legacy of hate in its wake."
