Brief Devotional Intermission for June 8-13

I’ve been enjoying writing my daily devotionals on the Bible and the Bhagavad-Gita. It has helped me hear the Bible with new ears.

I’m going to take a brief intermission from the Gita from June 8-13 and write a week of devotionals on Drug Policy and the Church.

There are many points of connection, of course: white supremacy and the War on Drugs, group singing and holotropic breath work, the use of entheogens (psychedelics) and the neuroscience of spirituality, and the way addiction is treated as crime instead of a mental and public health issue. The church has an opportunity, in this time of upheaval and reformation, to rethink how it approaches the ethics and theology of drug policy.

There’s way more material there than can be covered in a week. But I think it’s relevant to our moment.

I will keep writing on the Bible and the Bhagavad-Gita until June 6, and resume on June 15.
If you’d like to sign up for the devotional by email, you can do so here.

  1. We so appreciate receiving your daily dose of wisdom. It’s been a wonderful bonding time for my husband and me. I left the faith a number of years ago but he is still practicing Christian, although has become more open and inclusive through the years.
    We are both able to draw enlightenment and focus from the truths you share. Thank you for taking the time to elaborate and illuminate.

    • Thanks so much for your feedback and for reaching out! That means a lot to me. I’m glad it has been helpful to y’all.

  2. My husband and I were just talking about how shamanistic and pre-JudeoChristian religions would use hallucinogenics in their spiritual practices but how the Church condemned and banned the practices!
