Spread the Fire-2

And He said, “Walk with me.” This is a path of unknowing and knowing, of being loved and loving, of letting go and taking hold. This is an invitation to a radical transformation of consciousness.

Have you been disillusioned or alienated by your experience of religion? Do you sense that there might be a spiritual vibrancy at the core of the Christian path?
