Welcome To The Religion Network!

WELCOME! I'm Lisa Bowman. The Religion Network is an interfaith web site providing daily inspiration, quotes and religious resources. Faith and religion are precious gifts that bless.
However you worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. Let us meet regularly and build
a spiritual network. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.

I abandon myself into your hands:
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you;
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me,
and in all your creatures.
I wish no more than this, O Lord.

Into your hands I commend my soul;
I offer it to you
with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord,
and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands,
without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.

Blessed Charles de Foucauld (1858-1916)
Founder of the order the Little Brothers of Jesus.
Assaasinated in Algeria.


Let go. From as deep within as your fears,
resentments and negative beliefs are stored,
let them all go. Let the belief or feeling
surface. Accept it; surrender to it. Feel
the discomfort or unrest. Then let it go.
Let new beliefs replace the old. Let peace
and joy and love replace fear.

Give yourself and your body permission to
let go of fears, resentments, and negative
beliefs. Release that which is no longer
useful. Trust that you are being healed and
prepared for receiving what is good.

Excerpted from "The Language of Letting Go,"
by Melody Beattie
Hazeldon, 1990

In the news: Readers of The Religion Network
know Rabbi Chaim Mentz from his
insightful contributions to this site.

Last weekend in Orlando, Florida, over 6000 people gathered
at the National Religious Broadcasters convention. The convention
regularly attracts TV and Radio stations from across the USA and has featured prominent radio talk show hosts such as Dennis Prager, Laura Ingram, G. Gordon Liddy and Michael Savage, to name a few.
 The NRB convention is one of the most powerful and influential
media conventions in the country.
Rabbi Chaim Mentz (Bel Air, CA.) was asked to give 'Talking Points' for the media at the convention. His talk focused on how best to convey to the watching/listening audience the importance of Israel retaining all of their lands, and  why Jews and  non-Jews must stand together in the fight against terrorism. The event took place at Miami's Rosen Centre Hotel, in the Junior Hall which seats over 2500 people. Rabbi Mentz left the stage to a
thunderous standing ovation.


Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life -
think of it, dream of it, live on that idea.
Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part
of your body be full of that idea, and just
leave every other idea alone. This is the way
to success, that is the way great spiritual
giants are produced.

Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902)
Founder of the Ramakishna Order of Monks


Our life is frittered away by detail...
Simplify, simplify.

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
American author, naturalist and philosopher


And now the Last Word:

The bottom of a pail is broken through.

A Zen Master, on enlightenment

For we brought nothing into this world
