     Louie -- I'm not sure what you mean by "It's all about Jesus."  Perhaps you mean your life is all about Jesus or a person's life is to be all about Jesus.  If that is what you're saying, I don't know what you mean by that.  What I believe is very important is that my life and a Christian's life is to be the way Jesus lived and the way of life he taught.  Your brother, Richard Rohr, pointed out that no where in scripture does Jesus say 'worship me,' and many times in scripture Jesus says follow me.  And Deepak Chopra said if someone is pointing at a new way, pay attention to the way and don't worship his finger.  I definitely do a poor job of it, but I think I and Christians are to live the way that Jesus professed, which I think is a very difficult way to really be committed to and live -- after all, a person could get crucified living that way -- so what we do instead is worship Jesus which is much much easier.  That your "all about Jesus" has expanded into a universal presence that grows daily and is delightful sure seems to support what you have done and sounds wonderful to me.  I hope you do keep in touch.
