How did you come to discover Creation Spirituality?
I first heard about Creation Spirituality in 1988 when I heard Matt Fox speak at a conference at the School of Theology at Claremont in Southern California. The Coming of the Cosmic Christ had just come out. After hearing Matt and reading the book, I was sold. There was finally a form of Christianity I could live with.

I was in an independent christian church for many years. the dogmatism made me leave. At that time found ""breakthrough"-Meister Eckhart...by Matt. Fox, which opened a new world to me.
How do you integrate creation spirituality teachings into traditional christian churches?
I can not understand it.
I am happy to connect with tis wonderful community of CS, and to meet you.
I am interested in how your excitement about finding a Christianity you can live with translates into community. Are you part of any local small groups, or do you bring your spirituality into a group that is already organized ?
Do you see any intersections with the Christianity that you can't live with that may bridge these differences?
I would love to hear about your "journey".
Hi Rick, Thanks for the welcome. It feels good to be connected to this community and I look forward to getting to know you. I am in Sale Creek, TN just 35 miles north of Chattanooga. Its a small rural community and I live here with my family of people, dogs, horses, and sometimes chickens if they are not eaten by the dogs or anything else that comes along.
It is good to hear about churches that are explore deeper spirituality even if in a smaller group. I have not been so lucky in my choices of churches and am currently looking for a church preferably one that is not scared of creation spirituality. blessings
Hi Rick, Pleased to greet you! Thanks for the blessings and I'm sending them back out to you, too. I met Leah at an event that in a few words I can only describe as an evolutionary event for my consciousness. I had always been curious but skeptical towards our spiritual reality up until recently. It was even during a conversation with Leah that I literally broke free of the last bondage of doubt - a special event to be sure. What followed that was truly enlightening. Responding to your comment, I've always liked my name, but only thought it somewhat appropriate after I learned in an astronomy class that it actually aligns with the Sun and the Earth on my Birthday (Dec. 24), pretty cool stuff. Thanks and praises, Orion
