REV. DR. MATTHEW FOX
Internationally acclaimed theologian and Episcopal priest, author of 35 books including “Original Blessing”.
In this gentle meditation on navigating life’s journey with depth and grace, inspirational author David Sharp offers a deep breath for our souls. His wisdom is simple and expansive, his language clear and inviting.
Author of “Caravan of No Despair” and “God of Love”, and is a leading voice in the interspiritual movement.
Dr. David Preston Sharp’s “Power For Life Now” is a book about being an active participant and mindful collaborator with the best and (most subtly obvious) director in our life – the Universal Divine One (of many earthly names). It’s also a how-to book about being here now; about “Ask!…and you shall receive” and
“Knock!…and the door shall be opened.” …And like a good director, it doesn’t tell you what to do or how to do it, but guides by gentle suggestion, leaving the deepest and most profound answers for you to discover on your own.

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to help people discover their own strength to meet life’s challenges while retaining joy and a deep knowledge of the presence and power of God in the midst of all things.⠀
I studied Drama at USC, lived in Hollywood and became an entertainer to help bring healing joy to people – but it wasn’t enough. I wanted to be useful offstage as well. I wanted to be an effective communicator of the divinity I believe is inherent in all creatures and all creation. I was led to enter seminary where I studied theology, and became a Presbyterian minister (PCUSA) while continuing to act, sing, tap dance, and write music and poetry. ⠀
This journey helped me to combine the two greatest influences I grew up with – spirituality and the arts – into a life work. I eventually earned a Doctorate of⠀
Ministry degree, focusing on Religion and the Arts. I use my knowledge of⠀spirituality, my communication skills as a speaker and presenter, and my talent as a creator of artistic works to help others in any way Spirit leads, whether teaching,⠀speaking, performing, or writing.
I have worked as a pastor and have taught in⠀university and post-graduate schools in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area.⠀
I have worked at the highest levels of the entertainment industry, including performing on Broadway, on television and in films.
I invite you to reach out at any time. I am a resource of the spiritual and the artistic for those looking to deepen themselves and grow spiritually, those looking to become aligned with their inner calling; and those desiring to engage their creativity in a more meaningful and fulfilling way.⠀
I look forward to our meeting. ⠀
