Featured Spiritual Story:
Can I Help

As soon as he opened the church, a priest saw a woman come in, sit in the front pew and place her head between her hands. Two hours later, he noticed that the woman was still there, in the same position.

Concerned, he decided to approach her...

Featured Spiritual Parable:
The Big Meat Lovers Non-Denominational Picnic

Well it's time for the biggest outdoor meal in the entire country and every religious group and denomination was represented. The pigs were represented by the hogs head of their order, "Hampiguos" (Ham-pig-u-us), a wise pig philosopher, who talked and talked about every religious intellectual thing he could think of to show what a bright pig he was, but in the end, people just saw him as a pig.

Spiritual Movie Review:
Nicholas's Gift

Nicholas's Gift 
I found this made-for-tv movie (based on a true story) to be somewhat predictable, yet still a very enjoyable and touching movie. I won't share which scene with you it was, but at one point, I had tears in my eyes.

During an American family's visit to Italy, something terrible happens that ends up bringing two cultures and many strangers together in unexpected and life-changing ways.

I really want to say more about this film, but to do that would require giving away more of the plot than I feel comfortable doing.

Spiritual Book Review:
A Champion Lives Within by Boyd C. Matheson

  Spiritual Book: A Champion Lives Within
My father gave this book to me as a teenager, and though I enjoyed it I didn't truly appreciate its wisdom until I read it again recently. Is it possible to become a champion in all of life in just 6 short months?

In this parable, that possibility is real and the author even provides a workbook at the end to help focus your energy. This truly is a 'David and Goliath' tale... with David being you, me, or anybody else, and Goliath being the doubts and fears keeping us from reaching our true potential.

Be forewarned, this book was a limited self-published printing. Getting ahold of it is difficult (notice I couldn't even find an image of it online!) and the book now costs significantly at least 4 times more than the original price.

Even then, it's still well worth the money to buy and effort to find.

Spiritual Quote of the Moment

"Love is misunderstood to be an emotion; actually, it is a state of awareness, a way of being in the world, a way of seeing oneself and others."
