Spirit of Life, Come to Me

Often in times of trouble we call out in hopes there is some “One” beyond us that might help. Then, crisis over, we go back to our everyday life never looking back. This pattern doesn’t work well in these days of constant crisis. Is there any One to call out to? Inspired by the Soul Matters topic “Cultivating Relationship,” Bonnie, Laura and other HUUF members will lead us up to the edge of that question: Is there a God/Ultimate Source/Higher Power? Can we cultivate a relationship with this Power/Spirit? What can this look like?

Laura Phelan-Shahin, the mother of two young children, is a marriage and family therapist for whom cultivating and healing relationships is her life work. Bonnie MacGregor is a lifelong spiritual explorer and practitioner close to the end of her life span. This exploration matters greatly to them both.
