    Hi Michael, Finding you this morning on Gaia with George Noory was beyond serendipity,,, being guided by spirit is more like it, whether it be ‘my’ spirit, ‘your’ spirit or spirit in general, this was a Divine action. Long story short, the night before I had come under attack by a friend who is strongly christian. It is the same old story, same old song and dance, I am NOT christian and she is very fearful for the salvation of my soul. My good nature saved the day and all turned out well, BUT I could see that in times like that how a situation could go awry as you say “it could get dangerous”. Well the whole thing bothered me and I nearly lost sleep over it,,, but next morning I turned on Gaia and discovered Mr. Michael JS Carter! You really helped me to put that predicament into perspective. Also I just want to say that I am tickled right down to my toes that I have found a highly enlightened mind that I can so resonate with. Thank you for putting it out there to a point where Ray Charles could see it! I’m off to Barnes&Nobes to pick up ALL your books,,, looking forward to sinking in for a good read. One more thing Michael, I’d very much love to attend a Unitarian Universalist church if only there were one close by,,, I live on the outskirts of Fayetteville NC if you by chance know of one please let me in on it. Thank you for so much ,,, Love&Peace, Ginger Rain*

  8. Hi Ginger Rain!
    Thanks so much for writing me. I wish I could help you with a church in your area (there all so very different) but try to Google a church in your area and see what happens. Yes, many times over zealous “Christians” are not just able to live and let live. Glad you handled it well.

  9. Thank you so much “Girl from Serres.” Peace to you.

    Good morning Reverend

    I am sorry to bother you but I think you will be able to help me. I am looking for a certain doctor Michael Carter, he has his own surgery and his number starts with +1 516 254 8073. May you please help trace him as I don’t know his location, only that he is in New York. He is originally from Spain
    I will be grateful for you help
    May God bless you

    I heard him on with Heather Wade last night….Fun pleasant guest…
    Sounds like 60s TV star Soupy Sales….
    The only insane thing I heard Michael say was he believed in the hollyhoax scam….
    I’m surprised that he wouldn’t look into the truth of that topic….
