Inspiration for the Day, February 15, 2011: 

The following is from one of my church services:

Bishop John Shelby Spong writes, "To walk the Christ path is to be empowered to step outside and beyond various human security systems. It is to walk beyond all religious forms that bind our humanity in order to enter the religion-less world of a new humanity. It is to seek divinity not externally but as the deepest dimension of what it means to be human. It is to enter divinity only when we become free to give ourselves away."

May we celebrate the insights of all paths:
From Buddhism, liberation from compulsive thinking;
From Judaism, the power of story for healing;
From Christianity, the vision for social justice;
From Islam, surrender and discipline;
From Hinduism, the celebration of diversity;
From Baha'i, the power of waging peace;
From Sufism, the power of inner awakening;
From activists, the passion for justice;
From children, the power of now;
From artists, the creative expression;
From animals and plants, the abundance and flow of nature.
There are as many paths to God as there are feet to walk them.
