|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.
"Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?
I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears
my words and puts them into practice. He is like a man build-
ing a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on
rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but
could not shake it, because it was well built."
Luke 6: 46-48
The Holy Bible
New International Bible
Home is the definition of God.
Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
The wicked are overthrown and are no more,
But the house of the righteous will stand.
Proverbs 12: 7
The Holy Bible
New King James Version
There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that
everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a
mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend
to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go
into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired,
we are not a complete person.
Rumer Godden (1907-1998)
A house is who you are, not who you ought to be.
Today, no matter where or how you live, look upon your home
through the eyes of Love. Walk around the rooms and offer thanks
for the walls and roof that safely enclose you and yours...Be grate-
ful for the home you have, knowing that, at his moment,
all you have is all you truly need.
Excerpted from "Simple Abundance,"

And now, the Last Word:
Home is where we start from.
T. S. Eliot (1888-1965)
Poet, dramatist and literary critic
When wealth is lost, nothing is lost;
when health is lost, something is lost.
When character is lost, all is lost.
