What is the Soul

Most religions recognize the existence of the soul. But what is the soul?

Getting Started


This is my first post; an exciting event. As I type away at the keyboard, I cannot help but wonder to what corners of the world my words may travel today or in the future. Whose eyes will glide across the screen to test the flavor of my words and decide if my thoughts are worthy of mingling with their own?

So let me begin by saying welcome to the Soul Channel and inviting you to become more involved over time. Although this site is in its infancy, I plan to expand it as time permits and as my understanding of the software and supporting technology evolves. For now, your comments, including questions, to the various posts will provide both feedback for improvement and recommendations for future posted discussions. Read More…
