Every religion is a form of Spiritual practice, not
just doctrinal beliefs, but something meaningful in ritual, experience
and introspection through which we speak to God with Love as the only language.
"Love is the only standard. Forgiveness is the only process."
"A church is an attuned mind to the Divine." ~ Unknown
"If you would but believe that my Father loves you with an infinite love, then you are in the kingdom of God." ~ Yeshua ben Joseph
Kahlil Gibran, Your Thought and Mine
Your thought advocates Judaism, Brahmanism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam. In my thought there is only one universal religion, whose varied paths are but the fingers of the loving hand of the Supreme Being.
Acts 17:24-28 (KJV)
24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; 26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us; 28' For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
Edgar Cayce Reading 5125-1
. . the church is within yourself and not in any pope nor preacher, nor in any building but in self! For thy body is indeed the temple of the living God, and the Christ becomes a personal companion in mind and in body; dependent upon the personality and individuality of the entity as it makes practical application of the tenets and truths that are expressed.
Jesus of Nazareth (Eye of the Prophet by Kahlil Gibran Page 115)
He [Jesus] came to make the heart of man into a temple, his soul into an altar, and his spirit into a priest.
1 Corinthians 3:16 (KJV)
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
A CHURCH WITHOUT WALLS is a transdenominational, universal, virtual 24/7/365 church. It’s a space for you to visit as often as you wish to support your Spiritual walk and practices.
As a transdenominational (meaning beyond denomination) church, it is one that puts its focus only on God, the Presence, the All that Is, Christ Consciousness and on His word from all spiritual teachings and literature, and His will believed to be revealed through His Holy Spirit, the direct connection to all sentient beings as Love which is the religion of God.
This ministry is:
Since no formal worship services exist here, my work consists in supporting you as the "temple of the living God" in the worship which you maintain in your heart-centered daily meditations, rituals and dialogue with God (Abwoon in Aramaic). There is no hierarchy recognized or utilized here. I am no different than anyone else as we are all brothers and sisters in God's Divine Light alongside one like our greater brother, Jesus (Yeshua in Aramaic). It is my belief that we are all called, but few accept that call from Spirit which leads to a rich spiritual life genuinely lifted up and supported by the Holy Spirit.
- committed to sharing the good news of the immanence of God within each heart and there is no need for a mediator--you are already directly connected to the Godhead.
- considered interreligious, encompassing all faiths and especially for those that define themselves as spiritual but not religious.
- based on the truth that Love is the foundation of all religions which causes us to cherish our common humanity and is the guiding principle in developing a strong, rich spiritual life while acting as responsible stewards of our earthly home.
When your life is turned over to and committed to following Spirit, it becomes as a “prayer without ceasing” and a constant communion and mindfulness of the immanence of God. The presence of God, the Kingdom of Heaven, is within each and everyone and everything. All things that live have the God-spark within and that includes all animals, plant and mineral life including the very ground you walk on. We all have the energy of God's love within us and therefore we are all connected, all one with, through, and as God is us. For in truth, there is only God.
From a foundation rooted in scripture and ancient translated texts, I see all of life is "grist for the mill" in practicing the Presence as applied spirituality. Applied spirituality is a life lived with sincerity in heart-centered worship, prayer, acts of charity and other good works, and meditation in order to express that faith (that I call Love) with congruency, honesty, and humility.
In this website is information about services, recommended reading, informative text, and even a finger labyrinth available as a tool for your meditative practice. I offer my messages and insights for you to experience within and let your heart discern it's value. These writings are not attached to any religious dogma. All my information is based on the fact that you are Love incarnate and have within you the power to transform and elevate your life and the lives of others. Hopefully, this little website gives you a sense of loving support, and the knowledge that it is my sincere desire that you be nurtured in your faith here as you continue your work of inner growth and developing spiritual strength.
May you be more aware of the Goodness and Love that you are and the opportunities to share it all.
As a minister of God, Love is my religion in a church without walls!

******* ATTENTION ********** NEW UPDATE ********* SPECIAL NOTE **********
Isaiah 41:10, 13 NIV
Do no fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand . . . For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you”.
Edgar Cayce Reading 2540-1
When fear of the future occurs, or fear of the past, or fear of what others will say--put all such away with this prayer--not merely by mouth, not merely by thought, but in body, in mind and in soul say: "Here am I, Lord--Thine! Keep me in the way Thou would have me go, rather than in that I might choose."
William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616), "Hamlet", Act 1 scene 5
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
John 16:33 (KJV)
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
The time of travail and challenges on earth are truly in full swing--darkness is beginning to lose hold within and around us for those who consider themselves of "service to others". For those that are of the "service to self" will continue to get darker and there will be a greater split of humanity.
Although many people still struggle, and are tested, mankind's inner strength and faith abound. You will be given all you really need when you really need it; you might not have what you want but you will have what you truly need.
VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE and to contemplate regularly:
Whenever you are in doubt about what to do or how to handle a situation, first disconnect and redirect your attention to the things you would like to experience and create, rather than the things that you want to stop or oppose. Anytime you engage with any negativity, you bind yourself to conflict and you cannot experience peace and harmony in your life while you are fighting against someone else's choice. Allow yourself the freedom of disengaging and allow others to learn from their choices. Because if a person will not learn from his friends, then he must by his choice learn from his enemies. One either learns from the Light or learns from darkness--it is our choice.
Be assured there is more of the Light of God in greater measure than ever before and it will continue to grow. Though there are some very challenging days, there are also plateaus where we can rest and recover before the next ascension of energy. The reason for so much frustration and anxiety is due to the fact that there IS so much more of the Light of God coming into our world at this time (and it is accelerating) which causes bumps in our lives as it pushes the darkness out, and we are in a deep process of renewal and resurrection. We are in The Great Transition and it is that very Light that challenges the darkness within and around us, and that which is not healed and whole is brought out into the Light for our healing and attention. If there are times when you find yourself in pain and crying and don't know the reason, do not try to figure it out...just let it up and release it and like the storm that rains itself out, the sun always comes out afterwards. You will come into balance with yourself and your life as you feel what you are feeling and allow yourself to let it go and release. Let it flow through you and let go and let God.
Things you experience during this time are meant for you to observe, experience, and release without judgement or trying to figure it out. Become the observer of all that passes through your life and recognize that all that happens is not all about you solely.
Be sure to make time at BOTH the beginning and again at the end of your day, before you even leave your bed and when you return to your bed at night. First, be still and go within and connect to your Highest Self, your concept of God in whatever way you normally do as The Universe, Source, Holy Spirit, Great Spirit, The All That Is...and focus on your Heart, see the shining Sun of the Light of all Universes expand and grow and envelop you in it's brilliant white light, then realize FROM YOUR HEART with clear INTENT to bring in and through you MORE OF THE LIGHT OF GOD (Love) INTO ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE, NOW. Give thanks for the Light of God and acknowledge it as your only Source, that you are Protected, Illumined, Supplied, Sustained at all times and Bless the Light.
All you are, all you have, and all you do is with the Light of God (Love) that flows through you and out into the world from your heart, hands and mind with every breath, and with every step of your life each day.
You truly are born of the Light of God, the Only Source of All that Is.
Peace be with You,
From the Light of God that I Am...
