Welcome the Ides of March

TODAY IS THE DAY!!!!!!  (Please share today’s blog with your social networks and your email mailing lists…..I’m asking for everyone’s help.  And….thank you in advance!!!!)   The official launch of The Agape’ Project.  If you haven’t done so already, go to the Agape’ tab on this website….or read below for details.  The Agape’ Project is a great way for you to begin or deepen your existing spiritual practice using the tools for meditation and contemplation that have been part of the Judeo-Christian tradition for 2000 some years.  Just a little personal testimony, I have been using these tools personally and in my lay ministry role with clients and students and have experienced the following results:

  • Release from fears
  • Healing of past hurts, betrayals, losses
  • Increased happiness, peace and joy
  • A greater capacity to be and to receive love
  • Increased patience, acceptance, the ability to surrender
  • Assistance in moving through life’s challenges
  • The courage to face life’s challenges and to make difficult decisions
  • A greater ability to name and claim my needs
  • Identification of my own unique giftedness and how I am being called to live it in the world.
  • A greater sense of fulfillment
  • Tools for discerning what is in my highest good vs. what might just be the wants of my ego
  • A deepening of my trust in God and in myself

If you are seeking any of the above listed items in your own live, The Agape’ Project might be for you.  AND…..we have made subscriptions to this service accessible to EVERYONE with three payment options.  (See below).   So….without further ado:


Agape’ – The Greek word used in Christian scripture to describe the unconditional, unmerited, infinite, abundantly flowing Love of God.  Even more than that, Agape’ reminds us that God is LOVE and that we too are that Love in our connection with God, with one another and with all of Creation.  By embracing Agape’, we REMEMBER THE LOVE THAT WE ARE

The Agape’ Project seeks to get effective tools for Spiritual Formation into the hands of adults by providing a weekly resource that is available on a subscription basis.  As a subscriber, you will receive the weekly Agape’ Project newsletter which will consist of resources for your personal spiritual practice and that could eventually be shared in a small group setting.  Resources included in the weekly Agape Project newsletter:

  • A scripture reading (or two)
  • Some background on the scripture (historical and sociological context, literary genre, author, audience, etc.)
  • A brief reflection on the scripture
  • Suggested meditation/contemplation/prayer activity using the scripture
  • Questions for personal reflection or to be shared within a small group
