I am a minister, photographer, retreat leader, author and Quaker -- albeit one who's not always good at being a good Quaker. I am the author of "Awaken Your Senses," "Holy Silence: The Gift of Quaker Spirituality," "Mind the Light: Learning to See with Spiritual Eyes" and "Sacred Compass: The Path of Spiritual Discernment" (foreword by Richard Foster).
This blog is a compendium of writing, photography, seriousness and silliness -- depending on my mood.

...an all-embracing love...
Love people even in their sin, for that is the semblance of Divine
Love and is the highest love on earth.
Love all of God's creation, the whole and
every grain of sand of it. Love every leaf, every ray of God's
light. Love the
animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will
divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to
comprehend it better every day. And
you will come at last to love the whole
world with an all-embracing love.
