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.


Dear Readers,


What a tremendous verb is "passion." It evokes such sweeping emotional movement and overriding
attention to the object of its devotion. Put it into the same sentence as the word "holy" and see what
fully alive picture unfolds: a vibrant rainbow of spiritual awareness that throbs with unspeakable love.

- Lisa




Give me one pure and holy passion,
and give me one magnificent obsession
and give me one glorious ambition for my life;
to know and follow hard after You.

Chorus:

Oh,
to know and follow hard after You,
to grow as your disciple in Your truth.
'Cause the world is empty, pale and cole
compared to knowing You, my Lord.
Lead me on and I will run after You.
Lead me on and I will run after You.


"One Pure and Holy Passion,"
by Mark Altrogge
DaySpring Music, 1990

Be a blazing fire of truth,
be a beauteous blossom of love,
and a soothing balm of peace

Sufi Saying





The true heaven is everywhere, even in that very place
where you stand and walk...If man's eyes were opened,
he would see God everywhere in this heaven, for
heaven stands in the innermost moving everywhere.

Jacob Boehme (1575-1624)
German Protestant mystic and showmaker



________


Who can trace the invisible path of the person
who soars in the sky of liberation, the infinite
Void without beginning, whose passions are peace,
and over whom pleasures have no power?

The Dhammapada

The Last Word :

Deep waters cannot quench love,
nor floods sweep it away.

Song of Songs 8:7
