A CHILD IS BORN


It seems imperative, in this relatively young century, to imbue our symbols with meaning that reflect who we are today, as the book of our history/culture plays out across our lives.

A Child Is Born every moment, each with unique gifts and representing not only Self, but a constant movement forward in time and understanding. This should be cause for Celebration, a coming together of our Entire Family, No one excluded, ALL acceptable.

Those gathered within this homeless shelter represent a small portion of the community, including a gay couple with their son, a gentleman with Alzheimers, a drunk, a father carrying his dying son to Shelter, a blind ham radio operator who announces the news, a homeless man in a box, a Muslim child, an Angelic presence, 3 Wise Ones, a pregnant teen, and a child with Downs.


"Each type of living being is distinct and different. But when we pierce the Veil of Difference, we see the Unity of ALL Beings." Svetasvatara Upanishad
