He is a non-theistic freethinker who is not anti-religious. He is critical of nonsensical faith but cheerfully respectful of anyone, faith or no faith, who seeks a reasonable, collaborative way of justice and lovingkindness. Chris is the author of six nature meditation books, a spiritual autobiography, a novel, a book of reflections on homelessness and a collection of poetry. Selections from his new e-book of essays can be read at Nature is Enough. He is a teacher, writer and social worker in the SF Bay Area.
