Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman, editor of The Religion Network, a multi-faith Web site. We provide inspirational
quotes by exploring a new theme every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This site is offered in the
conviction that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and furthermore, that finding the
commonalities among the world's religions is more healing than pointing up their differences.

Religion as an institution is precious gift, blessing individuals and uplifting communities.
However you choose to worship, I hope this site enhances your journey.

On Today's Theme:

Such significance lies in the day. The earth spins on its axis
and for us the sun comes up. Rising, the sun lifts us awake
with its nourishing, encouraging light. At noon it floods our
world with invigorating warmth. As it gently slips out of sight
at the end of the day, the sun whispers, "Enough. Rest now
and be reborn tomorrow." Whatever has happened in the
past, God grants us a fresh start inside each sunrise.

With each day may we see Him more clearly, love Him
more dearly and follow Him more nearly, as Richard of
Chichester said in the 12th century.

 Do you think, If I cuss less, pray more, drink less,
study
more...if I try harder, God will love me more?
Sniff and smell Satan's stench behind those words.
We all need improvement, but we don't need to woo
God's love. We change because we already have God's
love. God's perfect love. Perfect love is just that - perfect,
a perfect knowledge of the past and a perfect vision of  the
future. You cannot shock God with your actions. There will
never be a day that you cause him to gasp, "Whoa, did you
see what she just did?" Never will he turn to his angels and
bemoan, "Had I known Max was going to go Spam-brained
on me, I wouldn't have saved his soul." God knows your
entire story, from first word to final breath, and with
clear assessment declares, "You are mine."

For behold, I am creating new heavens and a
new earth; the former (events) will no longer
be recalled and will not be taken to heart.
Only rejoice and be happy forever for what
I am creating; for behold, I am recreating
Jerusalem as 'Gladness' and its people as
'Joy'; for I will rejoice over Jerusalem and
exult with my people, and there will no
longer be heard in it the sound of
weeping and the sound of outcry.


Isaiah 65:17-19

Thanks be to Thee, my Lord Jesus Christ
For all the benefits Thou hast given me,
For all the pains and insults Thou
hast borne for me.
O most merciful Redeemer,
friend and brother,
Day by day, dear Lord of you
Three things I pray:
To see you more clearly,
To love you more dearly,
To follow you more nearly,
Day by day.



St. Richard of Chichester  (1197-1253)
Bishop of Chichester

Spirit of the living God,
fall afresh on us.
Spirit of the living God,
fall afresh on us.
Melt us, mould us,
fill us, use us.
Spirit of the living God,
fall afresh on us.

Michael Iverson

The Last Word:


Whatever difficulties you have had in the
past, you can make a fresh start today.
