A PS about this blog. Rodney Curtis is being treated for leukemia...has spent weeks in a Muskegon Michigan hospital. I read a half dozen entries and really enjoyed his writing style and musings. From what I read, I think he is an agnostic. I'll take the insights of an agnostic over the insights of a cocksure fundamentalist any day.
The site is definitely worth a look see. My friend annie believes that the interfaith movement occurring today is just a more in depth version of the inter/non denominational movement of the 70's....a step closer to God being all in all. I know that rankles more conservative viewpoints....but I am inclined to agree.
A correction to the above info....
I was delighted to find a comment from Rodney (Spiritual Wanderer) here on my blog.....which I am going to copy and paste below. Since I only read a half dozen or so posts, I got the wrong impression and mistakenly passed that misinformation along. ( Sort of like the guy at the gas station who a-s-s-umed Emily was a teenage mom :) Rodney is not an agnostic....
Thank you for the comments about Spiritual Wanderer and the rest of the Read The Spirit gang.
I can easily see where you'd get the impression I'm an agnostic but I wanted to assure you I am a believer in God, the after-life, the pre-life and certainly that little strip of life in between.
I just find my belief and spirituality taking on many different names and forms. I appreciate your kind words and since your site was pointed out by my publisher, others will certainly be reading and bookmarking your space.
