Forty-Two Ways to Nourish Your Soul

My spirituality is switched on when I live with a willingness to see God in the everyday. I am fully alive, and the most ordinary moment can feed my soul. For me, one key is finding the spiritual practices that are right for me. I practice my faith in community; I watch and listen to those whose switches seem to be in the on position. I notice the simple yet elegant ways people connect with the Divine. I begin to borrow the practices that appeal to me.

The Quest for Justice, Part I

As any detective knows, when something is missing that should be present, a void where there should be a plenum, it is an important clue.

Compassionate Divorce

My lifelong effort to understand and practice the art of loving has led me to write two books on the subject.

I hope that, in time, I will learn from the theoretical wisdom and insight of the author of The Passionate Life and To Love and Be Loved and become a better practitioner of the art of abiding love.

The Power of a Few to Help Lighten Your Load

Princeton sociologist Robert Wuthnow finds that 37% of us have recently had serious conflicts with a spouse or partner, 36% are moving past something painful in our upbringing, and 32% face serious conflicts at work. Most of us (60%) are trying to forgive someone else and nearly half of us are trying to forgive ourselves. In other words, we Americans are carrying a lot. As it turns out, those who seek help in groups do better than those who try it alone.

Without the support of a group, you miss the opportunity to gain new perspective through the experience of others.
