SORT BY Relevancy
Same-sex marriage is a phrase that conjures quite a bit of contention. The contentions are subject to arise in any organization whether it is a family, workplace, the military or church. The Episcopal Church it seems has just sided with same-sex marriage by allowing the marriage of two of their lesbian clergy members. Of course, this marriage has brought on contention. But why does the contention occur? Is there really something wrong with same-sex marriage? If there were something wrong with same-sex marriage don’t you think members of the clergy would know that?

Bordentown School -volunteers needed - restoration underway with volunteer electrical contractor John White! A museum on the once thriving black school's cam[us kknown as The Tuskegee of The North is John's Mission.
The Bordentown school, was originally established in 1886 by Rev. W. A. Rice, a minister of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, as a private institution under the name of New Brunswick Technical School. It was later called "The Ironsides Normal School." in honor of Commodore Stewart the benefactor of t Bordentown's Campus, his 350 acre estate .
Reverend Walter A.S. Rice of the African Methodist Episcopal Church in New Brunswick founded the Bordentown School in 1876 as New Brunswick Technical Institute a privately supported educational entity. Reverend Rice’s mission was to educate African American students of both sexes and train them “in such industries as shall enable them to become self-supporting”. The school was founded just five years after the famous Tuskegee Institute in Alabama was formed. It was known as the Tuskegee of The North"
The school relocated to Bordentown City in 1886, where it was shrewdly renamed and incorporated as the New Jersey Manual Training and Industrial School for Colored Youth. The name change from Technical Institute to Manual Training was an insult to the founders and it was the beginning of the propaganda campaign against black educational institutions, as a continuation of slave labor. The donor of the property, Commander Stewart, the oldest enlistee in the Civil War and an Irish activist demanded in his will that his property be used for training purposes- the State of New Jersey believes they meet the requirements, insofar as they offer training courses to their detainees.
Doctors of the USA welcomes Claire Willis, LICSW, author of the book “Lasting Words: A Guide to Finding Meaning Toward the Close of Life” and co-founder of Facing Cancer Together in Newton, MA, a non-profit community that provides support, wellness and educational services to all people affected by cancer, regardless of their capacity to pay, to talk about end of life issues and concerns which she discussed lengthily in her book. Listen in as she guides the listeners through their personal journeys to gratitude, hope, forgiveness, wisdom, prayer and ultimately, saying good-bye.
For over 20 years, Claire Willis has led groups for people living with life threatening illnesses. In therapeutic writing and other support groups, members seemed to gravitate towards a few essential themes as they sought to gracefully close out their lives. Almost universally, group members expressed the need and desire to feel known by family members and loved ones. They wanted to be remembered, to feel that their lives had made a difference. They wanted to pass on important life lessons to the people they cared most about.
Claire began her professional life as a clinical social worker. For years, she worked with people with cancer at the Wellness Community in Newton and later co-founded another non-profit, Facing Cancer Together in Newtonville, MA, where she continues to run support and educational programs. In addition to her group work, she teaches yoga, is an ordained lay Buddhist chaplain, and an adjunct faculty member at Andover Newton Theological School. She holds an MA from the Episcopal Divinity School and an MSW and M. Ed from Boston University. She maintains a small private practice in Brookline, Massachusetts.

I can't remember a time when I wasn't aware of my intuitive gifts. But I quickly realized the rest of the kids weren't seeing and hearing what I was, and I learned to keep quiet about what I was experiencing. In my twenties, I moved to San Francisco and began to “read” for family and friends. I realized I have a gift for helping people who are in transition—or who feel that they’re at a crossroads—make Spirit-informed decisions about their best path. I also helped people come to terms with paranormal activity in their homes and workplaces. In 1992 I was enrolled at CDSP in Berkeley, an Episcopal seminary. During my years there I gained tremendously valuable tools for growth in theology, counseling liturgy, and much more, but it became clear to me that instead of being called to ordained parish ministry, I was being led down a more non-traditonal path. I came to believe that my calling was to use my intuitive gifts to help others connect with the Divine & further their spiritual growth! In 2007 I went through a physical healthy crisis that brought my intuitive gifts into much sharper relief. I realized that I was being given a choice. I could continue a life of struggle and misalignment with my purpose, or I could embrace my abilities and finally step onto the path I felt spirit was leading me to...a commitment to helping people step out of the fog of confusion and reconnect with their own inner guidance. And so fog City Psychic was born. To learn more about Karen or info about the Breathe Love Live classes at http://karenhager.com or http;//breathelovelive.com

"It is beginning to dawn on us at this perilous moment that moving to a new level of consciousness is NOT an optional extra but an imperative if we are to survive as a species and safeguard the life of our planet." Dream of the Cosmos by Anne Baring
LivingEden and other shows like it are showing us the way as each step co-creates Eden on earth. This week we will be exploring the spirituality of the rainforests. One book I discovered, " Wisdom From the Rainforest", is an account of a rainforest forest society, the Teduray, written by an Episcopal priest who became a social anthropologist after a stint of missionary work in the Phillipines. The exploration raises important questions about the fundamental principals of how WE live. The Teduray are a nonviolent society, and to learn how different their underlying guiding principles are from our own is both interesting and humbling. One reader commented, " I never saw a better manual for how to live this way than Wisdom from a Rain Forest." I found that aboriginal societies and tribes living in the rainforests all have common guiding principles living a spirituality of non-competition, peace, cooperation, egalitarian, and truly democratic. They also live in harmony with the earth.
Food, timber, raw materials, grazing and gardening land, and medicines are all products of the rainforests which support our life on the planet and rainforests create great biodiversity necessary for us and our planet to survive. We'll explore the spiritual connection with all of these on the show. Please find pictures of the rainforests to look at while on the show. Listen to rainforest CD's. We love you so please, email questions, suggestions, experiences to firstname.lastname@example.org
Brief Audio Reflection "The Great Hunger" (John 6:51-58): The Feast of Corpus Christi , Year A
To be human is to live with hunger. While it may not be gnawing at you right now, give it a little time. Miss a few meals. Soon it will become the focus of every thought and action. Miss a few more meals and it will become real easy to forget that appetites are a gift from God. They enable our survival as individuals and as a species. They are reflections of “the great hunger”… our fear of mortality, our yearning for life’s meaning, our longing to fill the vast hole in our souls.
The great good news of this week’s gospel is that Jesus invites us to come to the table. God’s bounty is laid out for us 24/7. He wants us to feast on faith… to find meaning in life, to transcend mortality and find eternal happiness with him. In this gospel we are invited to do much more than encounter Christ. We are called to complete communion with the living God. We are called to: Eat my flesh and drink my blood. This side of heaven, you can’t get closer than that.
In faith if we truly share the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation, how could we ever go away hungry? We are literally one with Christ and one with millions of Christians who come to his altar this Sunday. There is one bread and we are all one body. We share one cup. We are Corpus Christi… the Body of Christ… nourished by him, living in him and he in us. We have purpose and direction… his purpose, his direction...
