Fasting For Ramadan bonds Catholic, Muslim Friends

#25 of the 52 Things that I learned from 52 Weeks of worship states: “It is quite ok to believe one thing, and stand shoulder to shoulder with people who believe something else.” Two women, Jordan Pahl, and Dahlia Bazzaz have learned this lesson, apparently. Their story…

Rest In Peace, Muhammad Ali

Today, the world mourns the passing of the Greatest Of All Time, Muhammad Ali. I was struck by a HuffPo article on the icon, titled “12 Times Muhammad Ali Showed Us the Incredible Power of His Faith.” I am inspired by those, like Muhammad Ali, that share their spiritual journey with us, and show us … Continue reading

Do you know of any faith-inspired service organizations that need volunteers?

Originally posted on My 52 Weeks of Worship Project:
My52WOW family – I need your help.   Do any of you know of any faith-based service organizations that you would like to tell me about? Better if it is an organization that needs volunteers, or utilizes volunteer energy. You know me – any faith community is fine. I’m…

Soaking up Solitude…in a Tech-Drenched Time

As time has gone by, I have become less attached to my phone. I am becoming the person who has a full voicemail box, who has silenced all my smart phone indicators so a text will sit, unread, until I physically pick up the phone, and who is constantly challenging myself to leave my smartphone out of … Continue reading

every eye beholds you: praying my way to independence day

So, there is a new addition to the My52WOW Book Club. Well, maybe not new, per se. I began this book weeks ago. I was drawn to it – It was a part of my father’s vast library, much of which I inherited when he passed away. It is a “book filled with the riches … Continue reading

Angry Conversations With God

So, wanted to share this book with you too. It’s called: Angry Conversations With God: A Snarky But Authentic Spiritual Memoir. It was not initially a My52WOW Book Club Pick (it was a pick for a different book club. What can I say, I love to read!). But after reading it, I thought I would … Continue reading

Contemplating Love

I have completed the most recent My52WOW Book Club pick: “God the Father- or Happiness in Your Hands,” and although it is clear this book was written decades ago, and included some curious information (many references to communism, for example), it did also challenge and intrigue me and include the author’s perspective on how to be happy, … Continue reading

New My52WOW Book Club Pick: God The Father or Happiness In Your Hands, by J. Dominguez, M.D.

Happy New Year! I know you haven’t heard much from the My5WOW Book Club, but that is because our last book club pick was a year-long daily devotional. It was a lovely choice, and allowed me to benefit from “365 Stories of remarkable people and the Scripture that changed their lives.” As 2015 ended up … Continue reading

Prayers for the whole world. Prayers for Love and Peace

So much happening in the world today – so many people hurting, directly or indirectly based on the decisions of others. Natural disasters occuring leaving death and destruction in their wake. This image resonated with me. No matter what your religioius background is, if you pray, now is a time to pray. For peace, love, … Continue reading
