Welcome to our July 2007 edition.

   It's not often that I get really into a TV show. I mean, it's only TV, right? It's not like saving refugees from Darfur or halting global warming or any other really focal and hip issue of the day. But saving Jericho from the cutting table became something that took up my time and energy.

   Some stories are just stories. They have a beginning, a middle, and end, reaching their inevitable conclusion. Then they're done, and you forget about them. Then there are other stories that stick and resonate, promising that long after you've turned the last page, the story will remain with you and never leave.

   After hours of driving, our dog MacGyver was as glad to reach the Smoky Mountains as we were. That's what it seemed to us as he pressed his nose into the window like it was a barrier to be broken. He watched the first trees of the park passing us by, sniffing the air near the open window. "

   The trip was the result of what I call "planned spontaneity". We consulted our map program, staring at it like it was some oracle that would determine our fate.

What is First Church of The Streets?

"First Church of The Streets is a road by which one travels, where there is no destination, but each step grows in possibility."

      What is the world today supposed to be? What is it about, and why? Is there any reason to even care about asking these questions anymore? What is a church of the streets, anyway?

     The "First Church of The Streets" e-zine is a means of answering these questions. It is non-sectarian in the sense that it doesn't rely on any one religion to satisfy these answers. Neither does the church of the streets negate religion for comfort in secular classic philosophy. With it not being constrained to any particular dogma, the church of the streets can employ any or all of these methods. It is also free to use those schools which are considered too foolish to answer anything by so-called higher thinkers, such as popular culture. Just as religion and philosophy seem to give comfort to many in times of uncertainty, to many, popular culture is a refuge and an oasis. In this respect, it is as much a part of the church of the streets as anything else.


     Starting in 1998 I started posting my poetry and short stories online.  My first website was an inclusion of these writings.  When I completed my first two novels, I made them available online, in their entirety:
New Earth Works.  The E-zine was a natural extension of this activity.  It went online in March 2003.   It  includes observations, as well as expository thinking.
