"THE DAY OF ATONEMENT"


   I was out the door before I learned much more, but heard one of the news commentators stating that the Amish had guns to live off the land, as though that somehow explained everything.

"Through the Hills"

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.


History

     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.  Since this is an e-zine of many ideas, outside submissions are welcome.  Any topic is welcome, providing that one attacks issues and not people.
