Our Purpose

Christine's Purpose....

When Christine Tripp started her organization, House of Concern, she had two tenets: the absolute right of freedom of religion and to do that which is right to care for people and promote social justice for all.  Anything else within the law is allowed.  "Each person" she said "is free to follow any path as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others."

What Was Spirituality To Christine Tripp?

"Spirituality is how we relate to ourselves, others, nature, our planet, God/dess, the Universe. Each of us must find our own path. No one else can discover or walk our life-path for us any more than someone else can eat, breathe, learn or perform any other personal life function for us. Positive spirituality includes: unconditional love, honesty, compassion, truth, generosity, forgiveness, tolerance, non-judgmentalism, peace, ethics and morals, courage, respect, appreciation and affection for all of life and nature, concern and activism towards restoring health and balance to our planetary ecosystem, taking responsibility for our actions and inaction's, doing no harm, doing good wherever reasonably possible, ethics, and morals."

Her Favorite Bible Verse

Psalm 23: God/dess is my shepherd; I shall not lack. S/he causes me to lie down in fields of tender green grass: S/he leads me beside quiet waters. S/he restores my soul: S/he leads me in the paths of righteousness for God/dess's name's sake. Although I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil: because you are with me; Your rod and staff comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my adversaries; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of God/dess for ever.

Information Is Power

House of Concern was the dream of Christine Adams Tripp to empower, teach, and arm women with the information they need to make informed decisions about life, healthcare, financial planning, and of course, taxes.  It was her goal to provide a source information for women's on all of these topics, particularly aging, wellness and spirituality. 

And then there is Christine's unique disclaimer.
