    • I was born in Yorkshire, England and live near Philadelphia, USA. I am a former merchant mariner; professional writer and community college teacher; I retired from a juvenile justice career. I have been involved in numerous social causes and explored various religions, sects and cults. My spiritual growth began with a dramatic conversion in 1963, and subsequent old-style evangelism, before I questioned dogma. I have written a collection of meditations, prayers and contemporary canticles that have been used for innovative worship services. You are welcome to request, adapt and use them in any constructive way.

      Because I became frustrated with my church for refusing to discuss progressive spiritual views, I have recently started an independent forum. Its aim is to make ancient values more relevant to our current age. I am inviting anyone who would like to explore and promote such issues to join my mailing list by replying to I use modern language, psychologically sound principles and contemporary themes to develop well established spiritual precepts.

Mixed their recollects together,

Conjectures and Assertions

Science and religion often seem irreconcilable; yet ironically they share a common faith. Along with artists, social activists and others, they put their faith in the same entity: closed-minded thinking to sanction shared views. Thanks to this unsubstantiated restriction, few people challenge standardized ideas, events and actions.
