“To connect with the great river, we all need a path, but when you get down there, there’s only one river.” –Matthew Fox
As an interfaith minister, it is my desire that you find the path that best resonates with your own spirit. Religion and spirituality are essential to a fulfilling life, and it is important to have the freedom to express our connection to spirit or to God as we each feel led, especially at life-changing events such as a wedding or the birth of a child.
My path to interfaith ministry began in Christianity, and my exposure to different expressions of this faith revealed what they all shared in common. Experiences in nature, prayer, Buddhist meditation and yoga, and among people of other cultures and backgrounds further revealed the depth of spirit and our connection to the universe itself. Personally, I find particular meaning in the path of a shaman. I was ordained as a deacon by College Park Church and ordained as an interfaith minister by Earthstar Spiritual Center, both located in Greensboro, North Carolina.
A native of North Carolina, I have worked as a writer and editor since my teens and have a Masters in Liberal Studies. One focus of my ministry is to use my writing to help others awaken to joy and freedom. Follow this link for a sample.
How Is an Interfaith Minister Different?
- An interfaith minister learns about, respects and appreciates the diversity of paths to spirit, and searches for universal truths contained in each one.
- An interfaith minister promotes understanding, harmony and love among different faiths by emphasizing those universal truths.
- I have no church or followers, and only wish to serve those who share my commitment to celebrating the divine spark wherever it is found—and it’s everywhere!
