"To desert the Truth in the hour of need is to prove that we do not know the Truth...The person who can throw himself with a complete abandon into that Limitless Sea of Receptivity, having cut loose from all apparent moorings, is the one who will always receive the greatest reward." ~Ernest Holmes

"I stand for a both/and world, where inclusion and collaboration lead us to embody a reverence for all life."

For the past twenty-three years of my life I have been involved with a teaching and philosophy known as the Science of Mind. It is part of the American denomination known as New Thought, and our organization is called the Centers for Spiritual Living. I have been a minister in this faith since 1999, serving communities in Petaluma, CA and Eugene, OR. This teaching is about personal empowerment, discovering and living our gifts; and I realize that is what I have been working at all of my life. Whether it was my time as an Eligibility Worker in the Tulare County Welfare Department in the 1970s, or as an Employment Counselor in private agencies during the late 70s and early 80s, or managing a wholesale hardware outlet for contractors and cabinet makers, or even during the years (1984 to 1996) I owned the Lucky Penny Pub, my life's work has been to connect people with their gifts and then with jobs and people that supported them in their growth.
