    How do you see life?

    You hear things like "Life is a journey" all the time. And I think we all tend to see life in different ways. Some of us look forward to a destination or even a reward. Others relish the journey, with their eyes on the next waystation, not an endpoint. Some see life as just being, kind of...

    A None's Story

    Was checking Libby, the library e-book app, to see if anything new was up and they had a new book called "A None's Story" by Corinna Nicolaou. No, that's not a spelling mistake. Corinna is one of the 30 or so percent of Americans who describes their religion as "None" or "No religious...

    The Holy is the Daily

    I like this meditation by UU minister Naomi King (who I've talked about on WC and WC2 before). It is about the importance of extending our spiritual life beyond those practices we normally call "spiritual" and into our everyday lives. I think the principle goes well beyond UU'ism and can be...
