Traces of God Ministries is a response to the need for soul-growth, of individuals and communities, who are expressing their yearning towards transcendence with words like, “Teach Us to Pray.”
To continue the ministry of Jesus to his disciples as He taught them to pray.
“God Is Just Love.” Love is the essence of everything. You are loved unconditionally. If you have difficulty knowing this love, this book is for you.
Both spirituality and science lead us toward the conclusion that God Is Just Love and we are loved unconditionally. Humanity will have an easier time learning and living this truth when spirituality and science are friends.
Everything is sacred. Abundant life is life lived in in love with everything. Humanity has not been living this way for about 10,000 years. We have done irreparable harm to the earth, ourselves and each other. We are now living with the consequences.
None-the-less, we can live each day with joy and hope. We can do the next right thing to make the future better for our children. We can find hope. We can be love. We can prepare our children to find hope and to be love. Resilient spirits and sustainable communities are required for this work.
We make choices every day. How we make these choices and how we live these choices transforms our lives, the lives of others, and the future of everything. If you long to choose well and live well, no matter what is happening around you, this book is for you.
God is Just Love. Love never fails. Love never ends.Buy Now

Sometimes in my book, God Is Just Love, Building Spiritual Resilience for the Sake of Our Children and the Creation, I talk about preparing for the future. That has led to some readers asking me, “Are you a prophet?”
“Ken, that subtitle for this column, ‘Speaking Truth to Power….,’ a reader might begin their feed-back to me, “…can’t possibly mean that you are about to tell me that I can, or even must, teach my children to ‘Speak truth to power.’”
Schonfield, like so many teachers and authors I encountered a few years later in seminary, was convinced that he had to understand the Jesus story without looking through the lens of mystery, miracle, awe and wonder. A Jesus without miracles? What kind of crazy talk is that?
Just how important are truth, integrity, reliability? Everyone has to decide who, and what sources, they will trust. Just a couple of days ago, I listened to Larry Buxton’s podcast on leadership and integrity.
