The Hippie Christian Manifesto - Viva la Revolution!

The core of Jesus' teachings are laid out in his Sermon on the Mount, where he teaches us to live in peace and harmony with both our Creator and our fellow human beings.
Jesus calls us to live a revolutionary lifestyle of love where integrity matters and relationships are valued.
Jesus admonishes us as his followers to take action and put his teachings into practice in our daily lives.
Here is the Hippie Christian Manifesto, a condensed version of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Viva la Revolution!

Rock Mass 06-03-2018

Rock Mass on the first Sunday of the month.


Rock Mass for Sunday June 3, 2018

The inspiration for creating "Rock Mass" came from the Rock Mass at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena California back in the early 1970’s. On the first Friday night of each month All Saints held a Rock Mass which was a mix of traditional Episcopalian Mass and rock concert. A live band would play popular rock music which couldn’t necessarily be called “Christian” but contained spiritual phrases and references to God or Jesus. During the 1960’s and early 1970’s there was an explosion of these songs coming out of the "secular" music industry way before there was “Contemporary Christian Music”, in a way, it could be called "The Gospel According To Billboard's Top 10".

The End of Religion audio book by Bruxy Cavey

I have been listening to the audio version of Bruxy Cavey's book The End of Religion.

According to Bruxy's website, he "contends that the Jesus described in the Bible never intended to found a new religion; instead he hoped to break down the very idea of religion as a way to God."

Bruxy systematically lays out the subversive, irreligious message and mission of Jesus. He makes the distinction between human efforts to connect with God through religion and God's desire for pure relationship.

A Visit To The Wall That Heals


This spring I paid a visit to The Wall That Heals, a traveling three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Being a Vietnam era Conscientious Objector I have always felt drawn to see the Memorial in person. Even though I don’t personally know any of those whose names are engraved on the wall, I have always felt a deep need to acknowledge those 58,000 fallen or missing men and women who served in Vietnam.

Silence, awe, reverence, pain, gratitude, loss, emptiness, speechlessness…

I don’t know how to explain it, I not only experienced all of those feelings, but I also felt a sense of healing connection to those who served in the war that I fought to end.

Although I am against war I respect and support our men and women in uniform.

For more info about The Wall That Heals visit Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund.

Peace, Love & Light!
