Welcome to our November 2007 edition.
"TUNING INTO A
HIGHER FREQUENCY"

     A person's mind seems like the ultimate private domain. In an age of digital markers tracking one's journey on the Internet, it seems that the only place for refuge is within the mind. This sanctuary seems secure enough. After all, what one thinks can't be traced by Homeland Security or computers.

"CATCHING TIME ALONG THE TRAIL"

     Our short encounter with the Great Smoky Mountain National Park was just about over. Retracing our steps reversed the sands of time to our departure, to the end of here.

"DELTA LAKE STATE PARK"

    I stood on a spit of sand that stood far out at the edge of water, far away from any bathhouse or comfort station.

      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.
