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.


The white lily
Lives each moment
Without movement.

Cherry blossoms
White virginities
Fragrance of freedom.

Dizzying carousel
Of snow stars.

Bird song
Soars high
Call without words.

Song of water
In the reeds
Music of rest.

Festive nature
Gives itself each day
To the heart at peace.

Herve Desbois

And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
'Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, saying,
Thus ye do bless the sons of Israel, saying to them,

Jehovah bless thee and keep thee;
Jehovah cause His face to shine upon thee, and favour thee;
Jehovah lift up his countenance upon thee, and appoint for thee -- peace.'

Numbers 6: 22-26

For the mountains may be moved and the hills may falter,
but My kindness shall not be removed from you and My
covenant of peace shall not falter, said the One
Who shows you mercy, Hashem.

not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid."

Pluck out your self-love as you would
pull off a faded lotus in autumn.
Strive on the path of peace...
