I’ve long been impressed with this simple statement which came to Ann Herbert in a Sausalito restaurant in the early 1980’s.

A foundation was started. It’s due for a revival. – Rev. Paul

Chaim Potok begins his insightful novel In the Beginning with the words “All beginnings are Hard.” Indeed, they are. Rev. Paul Johnson deals with some of these hardships but also points out the keen anticipation, even exhilaration, of the beginnings in our lives.

Jennifer Wolfe teaches us the benefits of gratitude and how to develop our gratitude practice.
