Scripture: "But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness."

Simple yet profound.
Simple yet sacred.
Simple yet difficult.
Rev. Tom's message of Jesus and his Organic Spirituality was an eloquent and passionate invitation to recognize and return to our very essence. Lying within each of us is the Divine love and grace that can lead us to be at peace. To be mindful of all that we have. Of our existence in the world, so big and yet so incredibly tiny. All within the domain of the Divine Creative force that is ever present. What a reminder of the NOW. What is within us and around us always. We have only to slow down and allow the liberation we feel to take root in our souls.
Listen in this moment.
Your heart is speaking. God is still speaking
"There is a quiet light that shines in every heart. . . . It is what illuminates our minds to see beauty, our desire to seek possibility, and our hearts to love life. Without this subtle quickening our days would be empty and wearisome, and no horizon would ever awaken our longing. Our passion for life is quietly sustained from somewhere in us that is wedded to the energy and excitement of life. This shy inner light is what enables us to recognize and receive our very presence here as blessing. We enter the world as strangers who all at once become heirs to a harvest of memory, spirit, and dream that has long preceded us and will now enfold, nourish, and sustain us. The gift of the world is our first blessing."
Excerpt from Benedictus/ To Bless the Space Between Us
“For the more limited, if adequate, is always preferable.”
“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.”
