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.

On Today's Theme:
"That's good" sounds about as exciting as "That's nice." But when we're
talking about the way God is good, the word takes on immense power
and sweeping meaning. Divine Goodness created the seen and unseen
universes. Goodness Itself reigns supremely, eternally.

St. Francis of Assisi (1181-1226)
Founder of the Order of Friars Minor (Franciscans)


Oh taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

Psalm 34:8
The Holy Bible
New King James Version


Know that along with every blade of grass and every
speeding electron, so too your own thoughts and decisions
are directed with the same wondrous meaning and purpose
by the One who created and directs all things. You only
need to decide to do the right thing and His holy
hand guides you on that path.

This is what confidence in the Director of the world is all about:
A conviction that since He is the essence of good,
therefore all things are for the good -
the obvious good.

If so, what on earth are you worried or confused about?
Even when your own mind determines what to do
and how–-even then He is there.

From the wisdom of the Rabbi Menachem Schneerson;
words and condensation by Tzvi Freeman

And now, the Last Word:

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life: and I will dwell
in the house of the Lord for ever.

Psalm 23
King James Bible

Being defeated is often only a temporary condition.
