faith & spirituality

For many people, the cold tenets of science are inadequate for describing the fire of life. With faith, there are things unseen but undeniably sensed, unquantifiable but wholly substantial, unprovable but entirely real. Faith can be a light that shines in the darkness and illuminates the universe as it really exists, under the artificial constructs placed upon it by our brains. Where science is silent, spirituality makes a joyful noise.

There are many Faiths. The Rainbow Family of the Tribes is one place where many faiths can be found living harmoniously together. For more information about the history of Rainbow Gatherings, and about the Rainbow Way... striving for a more harmonious way of autonomously working toward healing ourselves & the planet... go to: www.welcomehome.org To find out where gatherings are in the Pacific Northwest and portland/eugene monthly potlucks, call the Northwest Lightline at: (503) 727-2498.

Some would go so far as to say that the destruction of the sacred by the secular is the central problem of modern life. That is, intellect quantifies life, but intuition reveals its quality, and without it, we are lost. Science describes trees in board feet, but faith can feel their shimmering souls. In short, measurement speaks nothing to meaning. Where science is silent, spirituality makes a joyful noise.
