God Friended Me

There’s a new television show on CBS called God Friended Me. Here’s the premise. A man who has abandoned the concept of a higher power is now faced with that higher power talking directly to him through his cell phone – quite an update from the burning bush! Needless to say, the protagonist spends the first half of the show denying God, but in this case he simply “deletes” God’s friend request over and over again. He finally “confirms” the request and so begins the process…

Who Am I?

The classic story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde describes the struggle of good and evil that seems to be within all mankind. Man’s moments of goodness and kindness can so quickly turn to anger and destruction. This split personality has been the age-old debate and yet A Course in Miracles tells us that good and evil are both untrue; we are spirit, not the acceptable or unacceptable split-image we have made ourselves into…

What Do You Say to Life?

Red Ribbon Week takes place throughout America in October. The observance began in 1985 after a DEA agent was kidnapped and murdered by drug traffickers in Mexico. The purpose of the week is to educate people on the risks of alcohol and drugs, and to encourage healthy, drug-free lives.

Raise Your Words

Raise your words, not voice.
It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder. — Rumi

This quote by thirteenth century Sufi mystic Rumi is needed now more than ever before. We have become so divided and tribalized in our current culture. It seems that angry and hateful words and acts are considered the norm. But, civility and kindness can win out, if we remember what our goal is…

A Thought on Prayer

We often wonder why prayer doesn’t work. In The Song of Prayer (supplement to A Course in Miracles) we read, “The secret of true prayer is to forget the things you think you need…” and let them go into God’s hands. It goes on to say that as we pray in this fashion, we are acknowledging that we would have no gods before God, and no love but His. We truly want what God would give us in any situation so that “Thy will be done.” These ideas give us a little insight as to why some of our prayers seem to go without an answer…
