be lamps unto yourselves; work out your own salvation with diligence
I LOVE comments. Please leave some even if they are brief half-formed ideas
that you aren't even sure you really believe. I just love comments.

Reading about Islam feels more familiar than Buddhism, even though I've spent more time over the years studying Buddhism. According to Huston the four theological anchors in Islam are God, Creation, Individual and Judgement Day. Familiar indeed.
I am a forty something, married to a Montessori teacher and father of two adult children. My professional life has included seven years working in kitchens, eight years working in nuclear power (naval & civilian), and now my true calling as an attorney. Besides studying law, I have a B.A. in physics and in philosophy. I've lived in nine states and visited eight countries.
I am politically liberal. I have volunteered as a legal observer for elections and demonstrations, and part of my practice is political law.
I am theologically liberal. I've served as elder and church moderator. I never had a period when I stopped attending church. I love the struggle to grow my understand of God--which necessarily includes God's creation--as large as I can.
I am blessed and happy.
