I am working on a project for my journalism class at school about Chalica. The idea is to describe what it is, and how it's celebrated. How many of you plan to celebrate this year, and how will you do so?
I'm looking for someone that would be interested in helping me learn more about this religion. Anyone who is interested in contacting me, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org no spam please. I'm genuinely interested in this religion. Please help.
Good luck with your book.
Maybe you can share some of your views with the members of this group.
One of the great mysteries of the New Testament is what was Jesus doing during the majority of his life that we know nothing about. Leaving aside the story of his birth, the only information we have about the younger years of Jesus comes from the Gospel of Luke who describes an occasion when a precocious twelve-year-old Jesus speaks in the temple, impressing his elders. The Bible is then silent about the following twenty year period of Jesus’ life until he reappears on the scene around the age of thirty when he is baptized by John and begins his ministry.
What happened during these missing years of Jesus’ life? What experiences might have shaped Jesus into the man he became? Why do we find so many parallels between the teachings of Hinduism and Buddhism and the teachings of Jesus, who was considered a subversive in his Roman and Jewish community? Why do the contemplative practices of Jesus, which seem to confuse his disciples, seem so similar to Eastern meditative techniques? Could a clue to these missing years come from a controversial discovery over a century ago by a Russian journalist?
In my new novel, THE BREATH OF GOD, I example the implications of this journalist’s historical discovery through a fictional story of suspense, mystery, and mysticism.

Any UUs from the Richmond, VA area?
I used to attend UUCA in Arlington, VA, but life events disrupted that. I now live near Richmond, and I know there are 2 UU churches - one in Richmond, one in Glen Allen - and wondered if anyone here was familiar with either one?
Dearest Rev. Congratulations on getting your book, “Reflections from the Heart” published. This is wonderful news.
I do wish I had more time in a day to get everything done, which would include checking groups I'm a member of.
Peace Love Stardove
I have made a very recent decision to attend services at a nearby UUA congregation. It has been quite a long time since I attended any type of religious services. UUA is new to me, but it seems to be the best fit for me. I'm not a supporter of traditional religions for a number of reasons, but I am not an atheist either.
I have also been experiencing feelings of disconnectedness and lonliness. I can with absolute certainty say that I am spiritually sick. It is this part of me that needs the most attention, but I no longer know how to give it.
I am hoping through the UUA, since it does stress socially concious efforts, that I will find the way.
I am not sure what else to say.
