Deist God gave us reason, not religion.
Rev_Ken_Howard Ken Howard, a Christian of Jewish origins, is the pastor of St. Nicholas Episcopal Church, in Germantown, Maryland, the church he founded in 1995, and the author of the new book, "Paradoxy: Creating Christian Community Beyond Us and Them." Ken holds a Master of Divinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary, and received honors in Church History for his ground-breaking research into the Jewish origins of early Christianity, published in "Jewish Christianity in the Early Church: How the Church forgot its Jewish Roots." Respected and trusted for his expertise in conflict resolution and consensus building among groups with opposing theological and political views, Ken has been called upon to facilitate dialogs on issues ranging from human sexuality to interfaith relations. When not occupied with the business of pastoring and growing the theologically diverse congregation he helped plant, Ken provides presentations, training, and coaching on the concepts outlined in "Paradoxy," as well as in church planting and congregational vitality.

bauerkg Friend, Do you measure land with a barometer? Can you understand The law of gravity By testing The freezing point of mud At its greatest density? There is no God By knowledge's rules? Friend, Examine your tools. To discover God You must form your plan To the nature Of God Not the nature of man. The only key Is that forgotten faculty That pulses through you Now and then Eluding the hand And startling the mind. Spirit, it's called. Friend, You will not find God through mistaken tools. Who weighs a stone with a measuring tape? Fools. --- Carol Lynn Pearson
Altar_Ego Religion is the way that the mind negotiates with the Reality that the heart ALREADY knows.
Rev God is ever present and intimately involved in everything we do IF we invite Him in. He is absolute truth in a world that offers too many lies. I believe that the Apostate church is alive and well and our time on earth is short. Jesus is coming soon.
