Religious Diversity Is Celebrating God's Creativity


The true test of
Religious Diversity
Is not picking or choosing
Which is best or which is right

Not about persecution or conversion
But in recognizing the truths we share as a people
And accepting the diversities that define us as an individual

Religious diversity is a tool
to help man exercise discernment
to sift through the surface layers
and find the common ground of God

diversity is a celebration
of God's creativity

all cultural traditions and sacred ceremonies
are expressions of God's creation
all are secondary to the truths shared by each

compassion, humility, love
a sense of reverence and service to all life

understanding all creation is one
and all stems form a single source of consciousness

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
