Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

God's Salvation

God’s salvation is the reordering of a society addicted to fear
Into a society empowered by love     Tripp Hudgins

This God thing
Is not about fire insurance
Or being “blessed”

It is not a matter of getting earthly power
Or earthly wealth

It is not about using Sacred text
To use and abuse others

It is not about ritual

It is about
About seeing the other in front of you
Forgiving the one who hurt you
Letting go of your own fears

Being open
And kind
And compassionate

It is about walking the walk
With one who took his love all the way to the cross
Who gave up ego
Even life

So that love would live
