Dear LivingforGod, I wrote a book about a fictional community which uses spiritual principles to live by. I am a Christian, and many Christian values are woven into this book, even though it is about a "transfaith" or interfaith collective development of a spiritual culture and community. My radio blog talk about "spiritual consensus" expresses my calling to help unify the world-wide faith community. Getting folks to agree on spiritual principles is one way to do this. If spiritual consensus can be achieved in a small town like (proposed, fictional) "Allsville," then it can be replicated throughout the world. Our Christian values can be enacted in a way that doesn't exclude others. We can make Godly towns without forcing everyone to convert to one religion. If they do later ... well, that would be God's will.
By thinking about a few main spiritual principles, it also helps me as a Christian examine my most essential beliefs, and helps me focus on the main things.
If interested in thinking about how we could manifest Christian and spiritual values in the making of a town, check out my book and/or interview. I believe Christ wants us to learn to work together to make a more spiritual world.
