My father on hospice

  This is my dad with his friend Daisy. My father is on hospice, hundreds of miles away. I visited him months ago and am planning another trip soon. He didn’t want to move to Florida where we live. I understand. His roots, his home, his family — are all in Utah. I get it. Yet, I miss him. I miss spending time with him. We talk on the phone.

Will you stay close to me today?” The veil between our visual world and the wonders beyond the physical senses is growing thin. It won’t be long. I spoke via phone to my Grandpa…

What is more mysterious than the great unknown existing beyond the frontiers of birth and death? Through the bodies of women, we are all born into time and space. Each one of us must also walk through that great, uncharted door of death.” “I love this diverse tapestry of religious expression, yet I join the mystics everywhere…

Joseph Campbell, Love, and “Follow Your Bliss”

I delivered this sermon at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort Lauderdale on Sunday, July 27th.

The search for a beloved is a reoccurring theme found in mythologies worldwide. It is also a reoccurring theme…
