Are we worthy?

My Lenten meditation/thinking/praying/contemplating this year centers on my continuing journey inward… toward the notion of worthiness. Am I worthy? Are you worthy? Is their a worthiness belief system?  A worthy lifestyle?  A worthy way to live?

What would spirituality be like without the concept of original sin?

Pray for peace. Pray for understanding. Pray for tolerance. Pray for inclusion. Pray with me in the Spirit of Interfaith. We struggle with being One.


Are we worthy?

It is possible


For all of you who aren’t sure, it is possible to be gay and Christian.
It’s also possible to believe in God and science.
It is possible to be pro-choice and anti-abortion.
It is equally possible to be a feminist and love and respect men.
It’s possible to have privilege and be discriminated against, to be poor and have a rich life, to not have a job and still have money.
It is possible to believe in sensible gun control legislation and still believe in one’s right to defend one’s self, family, and property.
It’s possible to be anti-war and pro-military.
It is possible to love thy neighbor and despise his actions.
It is possible to advocate Black Lives Matter and still be pro police.
It is possible to not have an education and be brilliant.
It is possible to be Muslim and also suffer at the hands of terrorists.
It is possible to be a non-American fighting for the American dream.
It is possible to be different and the same.
We are all walking contradictions of what “normal” looks like.
Let humanity and love win.
