I was a stranger, and

Matthew 25: 34-46: Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and …

Little or a Lot

Excerpted from What Makes You Not a Buddhist, ©2008, by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche: One day a monk noticed a tear in Gautama Buddha’s robe and offered to stitch it, but Buddha refused his offer.

The Lord’s Prayer

The translation is based upon research by Dr. Neil Douglas-Klotz, an expert in the Aramaic Christian, Jewish mystical and Sufi traditions.

This carving was created by Gislebertus between 1125 and 1135, and shows an angel awakening the Three Wise Men, impelling them to follow the star.  You can read a little more about it HERE. I just like the way the three kings  sleep with their crowns on, all spooned together.

Love Is

Corinthians 13:4-7: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always …
