“If we wish to know how we stand with God, let us examine ourselves and how we feel toward our neighbor.  This companionship that we are seeking with God is found in the friendliness we show our brother.”  — A Search for God Book 1[Compiled by the study groups of the Association for Research and Enlightenment]

Better than a thousand hollow words
Is one word that brings peace.
Better than a thousand hollow verses
Is one verse that brings peace.
Better than a hundred hollow lines
Is one line of the law, bringing peace.
Gautama Buddha in “The Thousands” from the Dhammapada as translated by Thomas Byrom http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Peace

Thought for Today

“The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him – that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.” — Swami Vivekananda

Being of God

I love good preaching.  Recently I heard a sermon that was beautiful in it’s simplicity in explaining what for many can be a difficult truth to grasp.  The preacher was Rev. Dr. John Philip Newell, Guest Minister at First Plymouth Church in Lincoln, NE.  I invite you to click on the link and enjoy Dr. Newell’s sermon.
