there is only love

I'm from Vermont and I went to college and grad school in Belgium, prior to moving to Boston to attend divinity school and find work. 

Vermont is a rural state and Belgium is chock-full of architectural wonders.

Old, stone farm houses, quaint churches, stunning cathedral...

“Those who walk in darkness have seen a great light.” - Isaiah 9:2

We see what we are able to see based on our construct of who we are in this world.

Material sight is a projection of belief. Essentially, we see what we believe.

Spiritual sight - faith - is expression.

What do you want in this precious life?

If you're anything like me, you want infinite love, boundless vitality, and unending joy. 

If we really experienced unending joy, we'd get sick of it, wouldn't we?

Think of a time in your life when you experienced joy. Did you ever...

The Sermon on the Mount opens the whole message of the Bible, especially Matthew 5:13.

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? - Matthew 5:13

The first shall be last and the last shall be first.

Jesus points his reversing wand at the hea...

Prayer is a fancy word for sitting with God. Well, I guess sitting is optional!

We often try to function in life by overshooting the goal.

If we’re lucky, we’ll notice we’re not happy.

If we’re really lucky, we’ll seek happiness directly, instead of seeking accomplishment...

You’ve been wandering over rough roads and your feet are so sore!

You have plenty of initiative, so you start a project. 

Pave the world with rubber!

You flatten mountains and raise canyons.

You battle it out with environmentalists and get swag from Big Rubber.

One day, som...

God is love, so you never have to worry about God.

Meeting God is like going to grandma’s house on a rainy afternoon.

Except the experience is a million times more loving and gentle.

That’s why people call it “going home.”

Strictly speaking, God can’t forgive you.

By knowing all things are possible with God, we have infinite blessings every day.

Knowing all things are possible is like having a million dollars in your checking account.

You can write yourself a check.

How big does the check have to be?

Well, you have a million dollars...
