I am currently reading a wonderful book about interfaith understanding called The Faith Club
It is about a jewish woman, a christian woman and a muslim woman who came together in hopes of writing an interfaith childrens book but discovered that before they could teach a message of understanding, tolerence and cooperation to their children/ the youth they had to first learn about each others faiths , confront their differences and look for any common ground and so on. I haven't finished it yet but so far it is quite interesting and thought provoking. I also picked up Have A Little Faith by Mitch Albom at the library the other day another book with a sort of interfaith/coexistence theme Mitch's realtionship with a dying rabbi and a inner city preacher and what they teach him about having faith.
before that I was reading some buddhist materials and some books on catholic saints/mystics.

The last book I started was Oneness by Rasha. It was a book that a friend told me to read. And I never got to finish or start it. She was going to let me borrow it and things happened to were I wasn't able to keep it. I have to go buy my own copy. But the first page I got to read I was hooked. So as soon as I get into some money. I'll let you guys know how the reading is going.


Only by "We" can success be achieved. So lets help each other move forward, make a change, and Celebrate!

The last book I read (for pleasure, I'm not going to count all the reading I do for my Modern European History class...ugh) was a book I've read more times than I can count. It's Skipping Towards Gomorrah by Dan Savage. He goes out and tries to commit all of the 7 deadly sins. Hilarious and very thought provoking. I am awaiting arrival of A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn. I'll post on what I think!

"In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility."
~Eleanor Roosevelt

"The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before."

I'm currently reading Simply Pray by Erik Walker Wikstrom.

I really love it - it makes the practice of prayer accessible to just about anyone and it includes some very thoughtful sections on the value of prayer for agnostics and atheists.

I appreciate seeing all the different approaches to prayer (feeling gratitude, naming what feels holy to you, studying yourself, meditating and trying to let go of your egocentricism . . . etc), and the author is both knowledgeable and inspiring.

That sounds interesting. There are so many religions that predate Christianity, it only stands to reason that both Judaism and Christianity (as well as Islam) must have borrowed from surrounding religions and cultures. I read a book by Tom Harpur called "The Pagan Christ" that talks about that very issue. If you haven't read it you might be interested.

"The Book Your Church Doesn't Want You To Read" by Tim C. Leedom.

Great insight on all of the various aspects of religion that have been "borrowed" by christian faith.

I read a lot of books, I am a clergy person in a very liberal denomination of the Christian community here in Canada, the United Church of Canada. Most recently I read "With or without God" by Gretta Vosper an interesting look at the who idea of divinity and whether or not "good living" can be accomplished outside of a traditional view of a theistic god.

For pleasure I just finished reading "The Witch of Cologne" by Toshba Learner. A great read about the experience of a Jewish midwife in the 17th century. It is fiction but there is much historical research in it. There is a lot of sexuality within it so those who are trying to avoid that sort of literature might not appreciate it.

Recently, I've read The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous and Leaving Church by Barbara Brown Taylor.

Let it begin with ME!

Er. I just realized that I'm 30 and have to leave all the "twenty-something" groups. Oops.

The "Jonathan Livingston Seagull-No Such Place As Far Away" guy? If it is, they are both great books as well!! And in that same vein! My latest has been the Esther and Jerry Hicks books on the power of positive intentions. Very enlightening!

Work like it's all up to you!! Pray like its all up to GOD!!!!

The last one I read... was a re-read.
There was this novel, when I had come home from the hospital, and from my parent's house to recouperate a bit... this book was in my bedroom. I'd never seen it before. Very strange.

The book is called "Illusions: Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah" by Richard Bach.

Now, I don't claim that it's a spiritual book in that it's a refrence or anything.. more a Siddhartha-esque type novel, in a way.
If you get a chance, I suggest it strongly.

It is quite an interesting take. And I think it's very well-written. Gets a bit out there, but there are some really sound observations and very unique and enlightening passages.

I conduct the music in the women's meeting at church. I was going through the hymn book and I came upon a hymn that was a beautiful reminder not to procrastinate your day of repentance, and to spread the word to all of mankind (mankind includes women).

Even if you do not believe that we are living in the last days before the second coming of Christ, we should not procrastinate making amends, of doing good deeds, of giving selflessly, of making a difference. You never know when you'll lose your chance.

"Jesus was drawn to people not because they were sinners, but because they were sinners who wanted to be made whole." -H. Wallace Goddard

"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." -Jesus Christ, Hebrews 11:1

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." -Thomas Edison
