Life is one big obsession with bigger, faster, better things which are supposed to lead to happiness.  To be happy and at peace, one does not need to speed up.  One must simply slow down – enjoy life, live it simply, and serve others.

My name is Daniel.  I’m trying to follow Jesus and shun the cultural obsession with “more” and live simply and serve others.  I live in St. Louis, where I coordinate housing programs for the chronically homeless and live in a new monastic community, the Lotus House, in north city.
