December 2018

Lots of exciting news to share!

Later this month, the new STAINED GLASS SPIRIT book will become available. It focuses on WHY spiritual communities and leaders of spiritual communities should care about diversity and inclusion.

Since it’s coming out during the middle of all the winter holidays, I’m not planning alot of promotional activities until the first quarter of 2019. But there will be a big launch day with a live webinar and maybe a watch party on Facebook.

Stay tuned!

What Are You Prepared to See?

“People only see what they are prepared to see.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

What are YOU prepared to see? When people who are different from you, based on race, age, or gender … what assumptions do you have? Do you see them as friends or are you afraid to engage with them? Do you welcome them into your spiritual community authentically or do you simply greet them?

November 2018

It’s November. In the U.S. that means almost everyone is focused on Thanksgiving.

I am grateful for diversity. Really! I can’t imagine a world where people are all from the same “tribe” or “style.”

I wouldn’t enjoy life as much as I do if it weren’t complicated by (and enriched by) so many different types of people. I love that I get to live in a time where technology opens doors of understanding to so many cultures.

This month, I encourage you to also be grateful for the diversity in your life. Seek out new information. Talk to people you work or worship with who you don’t know very well.
