I have numerous people who ask me about my religious beliefs. I suppose because I am usually all over the place. Most my friends know that I was a seminary student in my early life and that I now do an internet Sunday service on my blog sites, often featuring one of my professors in seminary, Walter Brueggemann. I suppose it is reasonable that people wonder just exactly what it is that I do believe.

After giving the question some thought, here's what I came up with: I'm half Christian, one-forth Buddhist, and one-fourth Native American. This probably still doesn't make a lot of sense to anyone, but luckily, it does to me. So I have crosses with Christ on and off, statues of Buddha and pictures of the Bodhi Tree where Buddha received enlightenment, and a medicine wheel in the yard. It kind of all boils down to doing unto others as I would have them do to me. That lesson shows up in every religion. You don't need a whole lot more.
