Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman. The Religion Network is an interfaith web site providing inspiration, quotes and religious resources. This Home Page is changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You are warmly
invited to read every quote posted for each theme, or simply to read those that interest you. They are
offered in the belief that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and that finding the commonality
in religions is more important than pointing up the differences. Religion is precious gift that blesses the
individual and uplifts the community. 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 thought of the quality that marks the ministry of love.
And that is its sheer extravagance. Love is extravagant in
the price it is willing to pay, the time it is willing to give,
and the strength it is willing to spend.

Love never thinks in terms of "how little,"
but always in terms of "how much."

Excerpted from "31 Days Toward Intimacy with God,"
by Joni Eareckson Tada
Multnomah Publishers, 2006


Who can trace the invisible path of the person
who soars in the sky of liberation, the
infinite Void without beginning, whose
passions are peace, and over whom
pleasures have no power?

The Dhammapada (7:93)
Buddhist scriptures

Hashem, Master of Legions, will make for all nations on this mountain
a feast of fats, a feast of lees* - rich fats and concentrated lees. On this
mountain He will eliminate the faces (wearing) veils, that are veiled, of all
the nations, and the masks that mask all the nations. He will eliminate
death forever, and my Lord Hashem/Elohim will erase tears from
all faces; He will remove the shame of his nation from
upon the entire earth, for Hashem has spoken.

Isaiah 25: 6-8
The Stone Edition Tanach

* Lees are yeast residuals found at the bottom of wine vats after fermentation and aging.
Some wines are aged on the lees, giving them a distinctive aroma and flavor

You know my resting and my rising.
You discern my purpose from afar,
And with love everlasting you besiege me:
In ev'ry moment of life or death, you are.

Verse 2, "O God, You Search Me,"
Hymn by Bernadette Farrell
OCP Publications


I soar in the plane of consciousness above, beneath, on the left,
on the right, within and without, everywhere, to find that in every
nook of my space-home I have always been in the
presence of my Father.

Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952)
Indian yogi and guru

And now, the Last Word:

So whether you eat or drink,
or whatever you do,
do everything for the glory of God.

1 Corinthians: 10: 31
New American Bible

































Bonus quote:

A confirmation student was asked to list the Ten Commandments
in any order. He wrote: "3, 6, 1, 8, 4, 5, 9, 2, 10, 7."
