A compilation of the contents of my last two blog posts, I investigate our hunger for more, where it’s leading us, and what a “yes” might look like.
We don’t have to step on each other to get to heaven. It’s an open invitation. We’re all invited. There is not limited seating. The offer to follow God to the banquet, the party, the place he says he is preparing for us is an unlimited party. The only ticket required is to say “yes.” To RSVP in the affirmative.

There’s a reason I chose an Aspen grove as the header image for this site. The trees all look like individual trees, but I learned years ago (on a trip to Aspen, naturally) that the Aspen grove is the largest single organism in the world. All those trees are actually one organism.
This is the philosophy behind everything I stand for. I believe there is a life force begging us all – all humanity – to consider that we are one large organism. I call this force God. You might prefer another word.
