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.

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

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

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

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.
