Dave's Park!

Welcome!

If asked, it would be very difficult to nail down in simple terms, a definition of my spirituality. The first of two terms that best describe my spirituality is... "inclusive". I have said many times that I am far too spiritual to ever be religious. Although I was born into the Roman Catholic Church, I have since become a member of a Baptist church and worship in a variety of Christian denominations and feel at home in many places.

I have never believed any one of us has the whole picture. I believe God offers to every individual a relationship that is as unique and yet as different as we are as individuals. I have learned much from some whose faith experiences differ greatly from mine.

The second defining term describing my spirituality may very well be "nature-oriented". Like St. Francis of Assisi and many native expressions of faith, I firmly believe I am called to live a life that is in harmony with all of God's holy creation.

Here you will find a few of my spiritual writings, poems, quotes, and thoughts. Please feel free to browse.

As you journey may you not find what you seek so much as be found by that which seeks you. And may all who enter here be filled with the peace and joy of God.

David.

Emptiness

I have come to understand...

Emptiness is a sacred space;
not to be cluttered with
yesterday's hurts nor
tomorrow's concerns.

Emptiness is a sacred space;
to be swept clean and
revered as our only true
sanctuary.

Emptiness is a sacred space;
to be filled only with silence,
peace of mind, and stillness
of heart.

Emptiness is a sacred space.
