62, Horsham, PA
Enjoying life, aspire to living a simple life. Suffice to say that I strive to live a spiritual life as result of the passion I have for the teachings of the spiritual masters of many various faith traditions, not the least of which is Christianity despite the way its been modeled in this world and in this country. My heroes of the church are the Berrigans, Liz McCallister, Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, MLK Jr. John Dear, Oscar Romero in no particular order. The Syrophoenician woman. Gandhi of course also a hero even though not a Christian but he loved the founder of the firm as deeply as any of them. The Freedom Riders. Can't tell you how much I admire what they did. My compassion for the poor and suffering is core to my being and will never go away. Did much to serve in that regard, too much to get into here. Clearly I am not a good match if you are right wing or tea party type. LIfe is too short and precious for those sorts of discussions within relationship at this stage of life, looking for harmony on that level. Someone whose guiding star points in similar direction. Lived a block from WTC during 9/11. Transformational experience, participated in Interfaith peacewalk groups here and in Washington DC, and lots of other peaceful rallies especially during Bush era, also standing on the side of the immigrant. No longer engaged as deeply as I was but my soul always points towards peace and reconciliation, and on the side of those who are left behind. I stand on the side of Black Lives Matter, and on the side of those of Islamic faith who are currently being targeted by ignorant prejudice in our nation. If you aren't similarly postured, we would not be a good match. I lend them my voice and perhaps my feet will soon come into play again as well as result of this recent election and our national backsliding on issues of race, immigration and environment and the predominant white Christian ignorance that seems to know little about the One they are proclaiming.
