If you are looking for a place of inspiration, a place that will make you feel uplifted, supported, respected and loved...congratulations, you've discovered it!
On a more personal note:
My spiritual quest began at the age of twelve. Over the past forty plus years, I have had the pleasure of experiencing many different religions and teachings...including Baptist, Pentecostal, Nazarene, Unity, Unitarian Universalist, etc. I have studied Buddhism, Judaism, Taoism, and many others. Each spiritual experience bestowed upon me an "A-ha" moment or insight and with some teachings, the insights were numerous. It wasn't until I stepped into a Center for Spiritual Living and heard a loving, inspiring, and empowering message, did I realize that I had finally discovered my spiritual home. As a gay man, it was vitally important to me that I discover and experience a teaching that not only professed unconditional love, but genuinely embodied it, fully practiced it and to my delight I have. Little did I know then, over twenty years ago, that my life enhancing discovery would lead me to ministry!
I would consider it a privilege if you were to allow me the opportunity to share with you why I love this teaching, and why I find it to be one of the most empowering teachings available to us.
Again, thank you for exploring who we are, what we do and how we may be of benefit to you.
Consider yourself just hugged...one of those deep, warm, "I truly appreciate you" hugs,
