Palm Sunday 2015

Our cries of “Hosanna” must echo the cries for freedom and liberation of those detained because they seek refuge and asylum in our land.

This week will not be Holy unless we refuse to crucify the innocent.
This week will not be Holy unless we break bread and drink wine with the poor and abandoned of our community.
This week will not be Holy unless we walk the passion of the earth.
This week will be Holy if we commit to act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with all that is sacred.

Religious Holidays 2015

Religious Holidays 2015: An Interfaith Calendar (Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim And More) (PHOTOS)

We live in a beautiful, diverse world, and almost each day of the year is a sacred time for someone, somewhere. HuffPost Religion is proud to present an interfaith, inclusive religious calendar for nine major world religions: Baha’i, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Jainism, Judaism, Islam, Paganism, Shinto and Sikhism. We hope you will come to this page regularly to learn about the festivals of your religious tradition, as well as your neighbors’ traditions.
Please note that Jewish holidays start at sunset and continue until sunset of the next day. Also, due to Islam’s use of the lunar calendar, some dates will be confirmed closer to the holiday. If this list does not include your sacred observance, please email religion@huffingtonpost.com with a brief description of the holiday so that we can add it here.

Just Dates: February

Well,readers, what do you suggest I chose as a focus for this grant application? I have done my social media homework and have signed up to follow two of the judges via Twitter and  sent a friend request to Philip Thiel, even though we only have one mutual friend.

Thinking along lines of ‘Images That Open Your Eyes” with regular blogs from my daily observations through my phone lens.

Another thought is a series on the street that make up my work and home life. Quirky history, personalities and images!!

So, let the conversation begin!!
