Welcome To The Religion Network!

site enhances your journey. Let us meet regularly and build a spiritual network. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.



God of the season, there is a time for everything; there is a time
for dying and a time for rising. We need courage to enter into
the transformation process.

God of autumn, the trees are saying goodbye to their green,
letting go of what has been. We, too, have our moments of
surrender, with all their insecurity and risk. Help us to let go
when we need to do so.

God of fallen leaves lying in colored patterns on the ground, our
lives have their own patterns. As we see the patterns of our
own growth, may we learn from them.

God of misty days and harvest moon nights, there is always
the dimension of mystery and wonder in our lives. We always
need to recognize your power-filled presence. May we
gain strength from this.

God of harvest wagons and fields of ripened grain, many
gifts of growth lie within the season of our surrender. We
must wait for harvest in faith and hope. Grant us patience
when we do not see the blessings.

God of geese going south for another season, your wisdom
enables us to know what needs to be left behind and what
needs to be carried into the future. We yearn for
insight and vision.


God of flowers touched with frost and windows wearing white
designs, may your love keep our hearts from growing cold
in the empty seasons.

God of life, you believe in us, you enrich us, you entrust us
with the freedom to choose life. For all this, we are grateful.
Amen.

Time is but the stream I go a-fishin' in.
I drink at it, but while I drink, I see
the sandy bottom and detect how shallow
it is. Its thin current slides away,
but eternity remains.

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
American author, naturalist and philosopher

And now, the Last Word:

And Jesus answered them, saying...
"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of
wheat falls into the earth and dies; it remains
alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit."

John 12: 23-24

Practice what you know, and it will help to
make clear what now you do not know.
