Reading is a creative act, and reading about the great mystery of being human helps create our inner lives.


Elizabeth Jarrett AndrewExplore with me the life of the Spirit. How we are each called into the fullness of our being? How might we articulate personal truth and thus bring about justice and social change? What does it mean to serve the source of love at the center of creation?


May the rigor of learning to write well deepen your insights, widen your relationships, and enlarge the sacred presence you bring into the world.
