"PRESCRIPTION FOR LIVING"


   Do you ever want to just get away from it all, get rid of all the roles? Take a nice beach vacation, or a skiing holiday? Joan Anderson has heard many lamentations like these and more. In her book, "A Weekend to Change Your Life," she gives concrete directions to those people,...

BOOK REVIEW of
"THE WORLD IS FLAT"


   One of the most pressing issues of the twenty-first century, outside of the war on terrorism, is globalization and how it affects individual countries and individuals themselves. Thomas L. Friedman's "The World is Flat" attempts to cover the scope of this topic...

Our About and History Section
"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" 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.
