Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman, editor of The Religion Network, a multi-faith Web site. This site provides inspirational quotes through an
exploration of a new spiritual theme every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The Religion network is offered with 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 a precious gift, blessing individuals and uplifting communities. However you choose to
worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.
The story of eternity is the story of God's majestic presence. There is no before
Him or after Him. Integral to this Forever power is the story of His love for us.
We are given the present moment; and as all the oceans exist in one drop of
the sea, so does eternity exist in the only moment we have: the present. Live
deeply in the present moment, and feel the breeze of eternity on your soul.
Create in me a pure heart, O my God,
And renew a tranquil conscience within me, O my Hope!
Through the spirit of power confirm thou me in Thy Cause,
O my Best-Beloved,
And by the light of Thy glory reveal unto me Thy path,
O Thou the Goal of my desire!
Through the power of Thy transcendent might
Lift me up unto the heaven of Thy holiness.
O Source of my being,
And by the breezes of Thine eternity gladden me,
O Thou Who art my God!
Let Thine everlasting melodies breathe tranquility on me,
O my Companion,
And let the riches of Thine ancient countenance
Deliver me from all except Thee,
O my Master,
And let the tidings of the revelation of Thine
Incorruptible Essence bring me joy,
O Thou Who art the most manifest of the manifest
And the most hidden of the hidden!
Iranian founder of the Baha'i faith
My brethren, when God first began to love you,
He gave you all that He ever meant to give you
in the lump, and eternity of time is that in which
He is retailing it out.
Thomas Goodwin (1800-1680)
English Puritan theologian and preacher
Each day is a step we make towards eternity
and we shall continue thus, to step from day
to day until we take the last step, which will
bring us into the presence of God.
The Venerable Mother Catherine McAuley (1778-1841)
Irish nun; Founder of the Sister of Mercy
The Last Word :
He who binds himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sun rise.
William Blake (1757-1827)
English poet, painter and printmaker

God makes three requests of his children:
Do the best you can, where you are,
and with what you have, now.
