Dear Ones -
If you are new to Ordinary Life and want to know the thinking that lies behind
the current series I am doing, please visit the Ordinary Life website. There is
an explanation there -
This information is also posted on my personal webside -
I have a growing concern for the divisiveness that is growing among and within
various religious groups. My commitments are to increase religious literacy,
because it is a lack of such that underlies such short-sighted and ignorant
positions taken by many, and to bring together spiritual insights and
psychological principles that can contribute in practical ways to our growing in
freedom and love.
In an effort to increase interest in, awareness of and attendance at Ordinary
Life, we have created a Twitter account for Ordinary Life.
You can follow Ordinary Life on Twitter at
This will be a way, for those of you who have Twitter accounts to "follow"
Ordinary Life and effortlessly pass on invites and information about what our
gathering is about. We'll see how this experiment works.
As for this week:
At one point in his teaching Jesus said to one who would follow him - "Let the
dead bury their dead." Marcus Borg says this is the most radical of Jesus'
sayings. I hope to explain why and what it might mean for us when we gather this
week. I'm calling the talk I want to give -
Wanted! Not Dead, But Alive!
I hope, if you are in the Houston area, you'll be able to attend Ordinary Life
this week. I look forward to seeing you.
