Parrish sees Moore as follower of soul's purpose

Dean of Sancta Sophia Seminary, Rev. Carol E. Parrish, recommends Writing in the Sand: Jesus and the Soul of the Gospels by Thomas Moore. She blogs "... told me of a great book and I have been reading it. I think there are many concepts in it that we can all use when looking for examples of esoteric ideas that Christianity contains. It has been a pleasure to read, and I know some of you who may be looking for lecture topics should know of it. The title is Writing in the Sand by Thomas Moore. I am always fond of his work. An interesting idea he presents is that he could have stayed in the priesthood and become a cog in an organization, or become the person who followed his soul purpose. This is what any and all of us can do — or become — our real soul doing its role in humanity. It deserves serious thought, does it not?"

Parrish writes about esoteric wisdom and the divine feminine — "Sophia Online is designed especially for those who are interested in personal growth and/or non-traditional subjects of spiritual interest. Sancta Sophia means holy wisdom and it is our goal to share Ancient Wisdom. We use the term Mystery School because at another point in time those who sought higher education wanted to explore the mysteries of life and the consequences of ones actions from a higher perspective. Often getting an answer is not as important as the stimulating of more questions."
