My own life journey mirrors my deep interest and curiosity about faith and religion in a broad way. I am curious about how people, individuals, and groups, make meaning and sense of life. I have had the privilege of working with a diversity of religious groups and see multi-faith dialogue, service, and engagement as critical to us as individuals and our world. I want this world to be a more just place, for all of us, in all our diversity. Ethics, for me, is not just about requirements or check-boxes, but about cultivating a deep sense of authenticity in myself and in the communities of which I am a part. Ethics begins with integrity, living authentically and creating communities whether work, school, social or faith, that cultivate integrity and authenticity.
I started my blog, Scattered Revelations, as a way to share my thoughts, talk about the books I was reading and, I confess, to have some way to be accountable to read the books I said I wanted to read. It has developed into a place to share my journey, the joys, the struggles as well as my thoughts about ethics, social justice, and spirituality. I write about racism, feminism, and heterosexism to add my voice to a chorus of others who long for an inclusive world where we do not fear the differences between us but rather embrace them as essential to the beauty of this world.
I hope you will engage with me - submit comments, questions. I would love this place to be a place of sharing and dialogue.
