Give Birth to the Christ Spirit Within

Christmas is, of course, about the birth of Jesus, but it is also about the birth of the Christ Spirit within all of us.  This is what makes it so personal to everyone. Jesus and us are potentially the same.  In fact, if you believe that we are all one, and that we are all

God Loveth a Cheerful Giver!

The Spirit of Christmas is upon us!  So what is it that makes a holly jolly Christmas for all?  Peace on Earth, goodwill toward men…the birth of the Christ Spirit within…mistletoe, cookies and LOVE!

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!
