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.




Take my heart, O Lord, take my hopes and dreams,
Take my mind with all its plans and schemes.
Give me nothing more than your love and grace.
These alone, O God, are enough for me.

Take my thoughts, O Lord, and my memory.
Take my tears, my joys, my liberty.
Give me nothing more than your love and grace.
These alone, O God, are enough for me.

I surrender, Lord, all I have and hold.
I return to you your gifts untold.
Give me nothing more than your love and grace.
These alone, O God, are enough for me.

When the darkness falls on my final days,
Take the the very breath that sang your praise.
Give me nothing more than your love and grace.
These alone, O God, are enough for me.

Hymn: "These Alone Are Enough,"
by Dan Schutte
OCP Publications, 2004

Based on "Suscipe" Prayer of Ignatius of Loyola

___________


Jesus didn't pray about things,
he brought things about by prayer.

Armin Gesswein (1907-2001)
Lutheran pastor and evangelist




The greatest achievement it selflessness.
The greatest worth is self-mastery.
The greatest quality is seeking to serve others.
The greatest precept is continual awareness.
The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything.
The greatest action is not conforming with the world's ways.
The greatest magic is transmuting the passions.
The greatest generosity is non-attachment.
The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind.
The greatest patience is humility.
The greatest effort is not concerned with results.
The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go.
The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances.

Atisha (982-1054)
Buddhist teacher from the Pala Empire

And now, the Last Word:

The dedicated life is worth living.
You must give with your whole heart.

Annie Dillard (1945-   )
Pulitzer Prize-winning American author

If you can give your son or daughter
