To all who seek comfort, knowledge and guidance, we welcome you. Whether you follow the Ten Commandments, the Five Pillars of Islam, the Eightfold Path to Nirvana or the Wiccan Rule of Three, welcome. Here you will find peace and understanding. We serve the Master of the universe, who wants us to love Him with all our hearts and minds and to love all of His creations here on earth.

Just as the multitude from many nations heard the disciples, each in their own language (Acts 2:6-11), we believe that God speaks to each of us in the language we understand. It is not the place of this or any other ministry to question the message God has given you so long as His Word leads you to a greater love for God, yourself and each other.

On your left, you will find excellent resources to help you increase your love and understanding of God. We preach no dogma except that your acts should reflect your love of God and each other. We also believe that your should be constant in your belief. In all that you do, whether it be in business, your home or elsewhere, remain true to the teachings of the One whose Love is the very breath you breathe. By doing this, you will help others draw closer to God and draw God closer to His children.

Like any good ministry, this is a work in progress. Your comments, questions and suggestions for improving the ministry are always welcome. Please send them to Brother Ron. You will receive a prompt response.

Thank you for visiting our ministry. We hope you will find it a source of love and inspiration. Please bookmark this site on your browser and return often. Our content changes daily as we seek new  ways to love, understand and serve God. May the Lord continue to bless and preserve you.

Best always,
Brother Ron
