Message:  Welcome Clyde...someone once said that there are no accidents, there is a reason for everything. So there must be a reason that you found your way here.

There is not a simple answer to your question. Ron Lyons read something that he wrote at this year's Gathering that lends itself to this subject. I can't remember if he ever posted it, but if not, maybe he would when he reads this. Mickey taught us many things..he was a teacher...but he never claimed to be. He wasn't a preacher...but he provided a message that brought confort and healing...once in a telephone conversation he told me that the most important verse in the Bible was the first one most of us ever learned...."God is Love".

If we really believe that...then there would be no reason for war...yet it seems that most wars are fought in the name of one God or another.

I don't know what Mickey believed in his heart. But I would suggest that you purchase Joe Z.'s book "Crystal and Stone", along with Brother Lyons' "American Treasure" in the CD store, if you want to learn more about Mickey. As far as his music is concerned, start with the Box Set, there is no bigger value for the money.

The main thing is to stick around and join in the discussions...pay no attention to a guy named LarryLarry...he's harmless...ate too much Blue Bell Ice Cream and got a brain freeze which hasn't ever thawed.
