About Me
I am a perpetual searcher. An acquaintance suggested I look into Quakers ~ Friends to see whether or not I might find a good fit with my spiritual beliefs.

As one who was raised without religious teachings or indoctrinated by religious dogma my wanderings have taken me through a vast spectrum of belief in a Supreme Creator. Thus I am left with a few things which I can unequivocally affirm.

I believe that all life comes from a Creative Force (which I refer to as God) and is beyond human comprehension.

As a sentient creature of God I am compelled to be thankful for the life that I am given and to share my appreciation with all other life forms whether human, animal, or plant.

I believe God calls us on His own time for His purposes.

I believe I am called to listen quietly.

If I believe that God is omnipotent and omniscient (and I do) I have no need to think anything other than: "You know my heart. My task from then on is to simply listen."
