We do not worship the Creator as the white people do, but we believe the forms of worship are indifferent to the Creator. It is the homage of sincere hearts that please Him, and we worship Him in that manner.

Red Jacket  Seneca



My friend suggested what then seemed a novel idea. He said, "Why don't you choose your own conception of God?"

That statement hit me hard. It melted the icy intellectual mountain in whose shadow I had lived and shivered many years. I stood in the sunlight at last.

It was only a matter of being willing to believe in a Power greater than myself. Nothing more was required of me to make my beginning.

Much to our relief, we discovered we did not need to consider another's conception of God... To us, the Realm of Spirit is broad, roomy, all inclusive; never exclusive or forbidding to those who earnestly seek. It is open, we believe, to all men.

Great Mystery help me remember that your mystery lives in my heart.
