Calvin and Hobbes: An American Upanishad?

posted by

My wife Heather acts like she knows me. Maybe she’s seen the volumes of Calvin and Hobbes comics in my “book box” in the attic. Perhaps I’ve quoted a few lines or reminisced on fantasies over building disturbing snow monuments […]

Can We Understand the Holy Trinity by Contemplating Our Own Humanity?

posted by

Today is Trinity Sunday, or more properly known as “The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity,” in the Roman Catholic Church. On this day, Catholics celebrate a feast day which honors the mystery and doctrine of the Holy Trinity, the […]

Faith by Fear: Converting in Fear of the Unknown.

posted by

The past can be a dangerous place. Often magnified by the lens of the present, mole hills indeed become mountains and insignificant creatures become history’s monsters. Like quicksand or a Chinese finger trap, our past sinks its hooks into us […]

According to my Wife, I was Brother Lawrence in a Former Life.

posted by

My wife and I were lying in bed last night reading when she calmly says out of nowhere, “I think you were this guy in a former life.” Heather is a Christian and so not usually given to such “Eastern” […]

Thinking About Sex, Understanding My Spirituality: The Role of Female

posted by

I can’t speak for everyone, however given my various experiences last year–especially within Wicca and Catholicism–I cannot deny the power of the feminine aspect of the divine (and for our atheist friends, our human psyche). But what does this have […]

Thinking About Sex, Understanding My Spirituality: The Role of Male

posted by

As promised, here is the second installment of this series. All these posts actually lead up toward my Lent post coming up this Wednesday. Today we’ll talk about the masculine nature of the divine. Tomorrow, the feminine. Then we’ll wrap […]

The Fight for Life. A Catholic Perspective.

posted by

We’ve all heard the jokes about Catholics and their policy on birth control/contraceptives. Even though I support this policy this month, it’s still a tough pill to swallow. Every time I think about the sanction against birth control, I get […]

Hail Mary, Full of Grace…And Controversy.

posted by

My wife, a fairly liberal Christian, is reading a novel called “My Son, the Savior” by Melody Carlson. The book is a fictional account of the Gospel and of Jesus’ life from Mary’s point of view. We get to see […]

The Yearly Sabbats: Celebrating Change

posted by

Within many traditions, holidays and special dates often commemorate an event or a person. For example, Vesakha (Buddha Day) celebrates the life and actions of Lord Buddha. Christmas recognizes the birth of Jesus Christ (even though it is generally agreed […]

My Last Day as a Sikh

posted by

I didn’t sleep well last night. Today is my last day as an honorary Sikh and I feel as if I’m floating between two worlds. We’ve talked about how jarring each transition is, but it’s especially difficult with a faith […]

Seva: Serving God Through Creation

posted by

One concept pervades virtually every faith I’ve encountered thus far during Project Conversion, and that is the idea of service. And not just any kind of service, but the raw, selfless kind. Within Sikhi, it is considered the highest act, and […]

How to Run from the Universe…and Fail.

posted by

You cannot run from the universe and you cannot run from reality because according to Sikhi, God is the universe and reality. So why even try?  Ego. Now, I consult no more with my Ego, For, the Guru has warned that egoism is […]

Playing Chicken with the Missionaries.

posted by

July is the only month so far where my Mentor(s) and members of their faith community actively solicit my conversion. It’s okay, I don’t mind, so please don’t bash my new friends and spiritual family. And although the first few […]

What If I Settled Down…?

posted by

I love this Congregation. In fact, I love it so much that I’m considering getting t-shirts made. One of my favorite aspects of Project Conversion is how the community nourishes one another. This initiative has even motivated Congregation members like Lauren Elizabeth and Niki […]

Is God an Immersionist?
In the world of faith, folks often point out the obvious fact that God does not belong to a particular creed, religion, race, or school of philosophy. This sentiment establishes the divine as one which transcends divisive terms of affiliation. But I am here to announce that a brief exploration of

Immersion in Relationships: Five Ways to Bring your Relationships to Life
I did something last night with my wife that we haven't done in a very long time... Okay, not from that far back, but it certainly feels that way. Last night, we had a date night. N

The Path of Immersion: An Introduction and How Entering the Path Leads to a Deeper Sense of Self
Today marks my official declaration of fidelity and discipleship to the Path of Immersion. Along with that declaration, I also invite you to join me in whatever capacity feels the most suitable. The Path of Immersion is not one which demands conversion, evangelism, worship, or exclusivity. Along th

Farewell, Project Conversion: The End of an Adventure
When I converted to Christianity at the age of 15, I assumed the faith with a passionate resolve. Despite the positive instruction from my pastor and others, I (for reasons I cannot explain) transformed into a fiery evangelist, launching Christianity at friends and strangers like salvos of religious
