Funny, isn’t it, the things that we think are not spiritual? Why is telling jokes not spiritual? Why is something beautiful—a car, a suit—not spiritual? Why is physical excellence not spiritual? Why is sex not spiritual? Religion is simply institutionalized spirituality, passing on its good news to the next generation to do with as they see fit, which will then itself be passed on, and thus unto the ends of time. - taken from #IntegralSpirituality

The Chicken Dance

Of the many dreams I recall having the night of Tues 10 Feb, one was lucid. In this dream, I tried twice to manipulate the scenery and died both times as a result. Died in the dream, that is; I'm not a zombie blogger guys don't panic.

I was on a farm, standing next to a red barn. There were those tube metal fences around, which formed several enclosures. In the area were a lot of chickens roaming around, a few hens but mostly roosters. As I saw them, I couldn't help but make clucking...

Intro to OBEs

Hey folks! Today, I'm gonna tell ya about OBEs!

What is an out-of-body experience? A myth? A hallucination? A journey of one's spirit through non-physical space? Well, as far as I can tell, there are more questions than answers. But before we get into the technical aspects, I'll do my best to describe what my OBEs this morning were like.

Time: roughly 0500, somewhat before the time I'd been getting up in the mornings. I had been dreaming, so I was...

Advent season; growing up.

Our pastor at Broadway, Edgar Tanner, has been speaking about the traditional Advent things: Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace. But he's been expounding on what you might call the 'mature' or more complex versions of these. Namely: expectation, engagement, enthusiasm, and enjoyment. His most recent sermon - on peace - has proved especially poignant at this time in my life.

He's made a strong case that each of these things are closely correlated and indeed inseparable from their polar opposites....

The Hallways of an Integral Church

Posted December 14th, 2014 at 07:12 AM by Tek (This Chance to Be Alive and Breathing)

At Broadway Church of KC, we hold it to be true that all people are spiritual beings on a human journey, rather than human beings on a spiritual journey. We are a Baptist church that honors the Christian traditions, embraces rationality and the scientific process, recognizes the context-bound nature of all understanding, and works to honor and include the best of these stages of understanding while transcending the limited and limiting aspects of them.

Humanity, of all the living...
