I Hope…

We need a spirituality that binds all humans together with their universe. Religion comes from the Latin ligio which means to bind together. In this sense, a new spirituality would bind us together and accept the differences that are so exquisitely revealed.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  1. Your comment is most appropriate and true to very word.
    Spirituality finds no relation to religion which means it accepts and binds every one together.

  2. Yes indeed Ivon. Thank you for sharing this. Val x

  3. Have I told you about the book I was introduced to by a friend. It is called Awakening One New Man and is written in 12 chapters with a different Jewish or Gentile writer for each chapter. It is very similar to this subject and the hope for unity in the future. You can take a look at stories and books for a brief look at what it is about. I have thoroughly enjoyed it.It is a word press blog.

    • Thank you Marie. It sounds interesting and I will look into it. It sounds similar to Simon Wiesenthal’s Sunflower. He discussed forgiveness as it related to an experience he had during World War II. The second half of this very short book is a broader discussion on forgiveness with a number of people from various faiths contributing their views about forgiveness and the way they understood it based on their religion.
