The Author

This is just a short excerpt for the about page.

img_5843I am a female of color and a cleric ( I am a bishop in the Mar Thoma Orthodox Church).  I am the visionary for the Berean Meeting Place, a series of small groups that bring people together to learn and grow naturally, physically, and spiritually.   I am lovingly called, “+Amma” (mother) or P.C. (Pastor Cheryl).   I am blogging because I want to share my experiences and observations about faith and the society we live in.

My goal is to awaken the kingdom within.  I believe  Jesus came to teach us about the kingdom, Thy kingdom come.    I believe the true purpose of Christ is to show us how to manifest this kingdom.  The tools are found in the teachings of the gospels, the writings of the church fathers, the lessons taught by the Desert Fathers and Mothers, and in traditions.

Jesus began his ministry preaching, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.  If we are unafraid to look within,  we will fulfill our purpose to manifest Christ….  Christ in you the hope of glory.
