• A peaceful revolution

    By David Reeves

    Many who are nominal Christians don’t remember, or even ever knew, that for centuries the purpose of being Christian was union with God. That meant conscious union now, not sometime in the future. As St. Catherine of Genoa said, “My being is God, not by simple participation, but by a true transformation of my Being. My me is God!”

  • Tips for building better relationships

    By Karl Lusk

    Recently, at a training for emergency services chaplains, the presenter included a segment on “building better relationships.” We all need to learn as much about that as we can, especially in light of a tremendous need in society today for us to understand that we are all called to be in community with each other, that we can respect differing opinions and truly see God’s face in every human being.
