Profile Information

About Me:
A man on a journey of faith
Faith Background & Affiliation
Background in several various faiths
Occupation or Primary Activity
Involvement in Spirituality/Religion
Because there are no Buddhist groups in my area, I read books. I read a lot of books on Buddhism. My latest are "The Other Buddhism" and "Just As You Are." In my younger years, I spent four years studying for the priesthood (Christian) and, while we parted ways, those four years in a seminary have influenced my perspective today.
