Happy THANKSgiving!

There is so much to say on the topic of Thanksgiving, that I’m going to take three (or four!) weeks to do it.  It’s such an important topic upon which to dwell.  This week I’d like to focus upon the “thanks” part of the word.  Are we truly thankful for that which we have? It

What Is God?

I wrote this message at 12 years of age…the age at which I first realized what my life’s work was to be, and I accepted the call.  It is amazing how much it is like something that I would have written today, more than 40 years later. We think children don’t know, but they do!

Let the Healing Begin

Let the healing begin!  Or more to the point…stop interrupting the healing because it has already begun.  We are naturally in a state of perpetual healing.  What we need is to become more aware and work to help the process along, rather than hindering it. What happens when we cut our finger?  The healing process

The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil

In the Beginning…God created everything and saw it as good.  Why can’t we do the same?  To see other than good is to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  God said, “…thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (Genesis

In the Beginning…

In the Beginning…God created the heavens and earth…and a whole system of order was put into place.  Everything worked as it should, enabling growth, change, development, LIFE. “God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.”   (Genesis 1:31) VERY good.  In fact, it was a paradise!  We were provided with
