God Loving vs. God Fearing

O Holy Night

  My talented spiritual singer songwriter friend Annabella Wood has a way with words and blending them with music in such a way that it delights and tickles souls. Today was no exception as  at our interfaith community Circle of […]


Conspiracy of Love

  “Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.”– Hamilton Wright Mabie In case you hadn’t noticed, there are a few ways that people generally view the holidays. The first is that there is a lot of pressure attached […]


God Has No Religion

  When I first saw this quote today, it resonated resoundingly in my heart as Truth with a capital T.  Goosebumps, which are what I call my ‘Truth Barometer’ rose on my arms. There are some who are reading these words […]

Fried Matzah

Tonight is the first night of Passover; the annual holiday in the Jewish religion that commemorates the Exodus from Egypt. Most who are reading this may be familiar with the Hollywood-ized version in the movie The Ten Commandments or those who […]

Spiritual Rave

Finding My Freedom

  Friday night saw me seated at a long table in the suburban South Jersey home of my friends Lisa and Gamell. A white table cloth covered the new dining room table that was being used for the first time […]


When Godspell debuted in  the 1970’s, the theme was ancient, but the production was of its time….with a colorful cast of hippie-esque singers and dancers in celebration around Jesus. Quite ‘Woodstock era’  in costume and make-up with the central character […]


  Christmas morning found me at one of my interfaith communities where I share spiritual sustenance. It is called Circle of Miracles, and for very good reason…miracles flow through the place, like sweet aroma of lavendar on a breeze, they reverberate […]
