RELIGION IS NOT OUR CONCERN

"Our only task is to call people to 'be still and know,' listen..."

"Religion is not our concern; it is God's concern. The sooner we stop thinking we are the energetic operators of religion and discover that God is at work, as the Aggressor, the Invader, the Initiator, so much the sooner we discover that our task is to call people to be still and know, listen, harken in quiet invitation to the subtle promptings of the Divine. Our task is to encourage others first to let go, to cease striving...to please an external deity. God is the Seeker, and not we alone; God is anxious to swell out our time-nows into an Eternal Now by filling them with a sense of Presence." -- Thomas R. Kelly in A Testament of Devotion
