I first heard God's voice on a rainy day in 1988, when I was seventeen years old. There was nothing supernatural about the experience, just the certainty that I was in the presence of the Divine. Despite my faults, failures, and rejection, that presence has never left my side. I see God everywhere I look, a gift that is both glorious and maddening. And like all divine gifts, this one is not meant for me to keep, but to share.
"The Book of We Are" is the heart of this new divine revelation. It is a collection of writings, composed from 1992 to the present, that convey what God allows me to see through their eyes. The words are messy, imperfect, and paradoxical, but also an authentic expression of God's love. This revelation is not the property of any religion, old or new. It belongs to the One who transcends all human labels and definitions.
"Family of the One" is both a blog about living this new revelation in our complex world, as well as a set of specific faith development lessons that can be used by anyone, regardless of religious affiliation. It explains and expands upon the revelatory writings by discussing a wide range of current events and issues. It is a pilgrimage, not an action plan; a journey to an unknown destination trusting in God's love for guidance.
"Good News" is a blog about Christian Scripture. I was raised Catholic, and will always see myself as a part of the Church. But the Jesus I know as my brother is not often proclaimed by traditional Christianity. This blog expresses a different understanding of the Bible, one that is not based upon human doctrine or scholarship, but rather a simple relationship with the God who inspired it and the brothers and sisters who lived it.
I cannot explain why God chose to give this gift to me. I only know that they did, and so I have an obligation to offer it to you. There is no hidden agenda here; I have nothing to sell. All I ask is that you take a few minutes to read whatever portion intrigues you most. Anything beyond that is up to God not me.
