Only Love Remains

Most people would say I’m not religious. I’m not spiritually religious, although I exhibit some behaviors in a religious manner.

It’s movie season

With thanks to filmmaker Pauline Schneider, I’ve embedded below a 1-minute trailer and slightly outdated 43-minute film. Please tease your friends with the trailer and then organize a viewing of the longer film. I’ll be available for Q&A via Skype after you watch the film. Please email me with dates and times: guy.r.mcpherson@gmail.com. Trailer for …
