Sunday service with Rev. Robert Brumet and Rev. Pat Bessey
THIS SUNDAY 8:30 a.m. Facebook Live and YouTube… 10 a.m. in-person service!
I had so much fun on Sunday being with my friend and colleague Rev. Robert Brumet from Kansas City, MO. I had the opportunity to interview Robert on many different topics. He is the author of several books, such as Finding Yourself in Transition, Birthing a Greater Reality and the latest, which is Living Originally. I have been using that for a talk series over the last few months.
Robert has been an ordained Unity minister for 41 years and how he got to Unity and the prophesy that he received on his first visit is a wonderful story that he told us. He shared from the last chapter in the book, “I am the author of my life,” that we are merely actors in this game called life and as the actor (ego) we play the role perfectly.
From the book, he writes, “The ego has a counterpart: the Omega-self, which is an infinitely older and wiser version of itself. It authors the story. The only separation between these two versions is our limited awareness. Evolution is simply awareness unfolding through time, bringing you ever closer to the recognition that, at the deepest level, you are Omega.”
To watch the interview and participate in the meditation led by Robert, watch the video above. If you would like to get reflections from Robert visit his website, robertbrumet.com, and scroll down to the bottom of the page to sign up.
This coming Sunday we will be back in person at our 10 a.m. service. The Board of Trustees and I have been very conscious of the protocols needed to be in place to keep everyone as safe as possible. Masks are optional if you have been fully vaccinated. If you haven’t, then we do ask that you wear a mask. We will not have community singing at this time. We will phase that back in over time. There will be a section in the sanctuary if you want to social distance. Being mindful of everyone’s comfort, please ask before you hug and take a person’s hand.
Hospitality will be limited to coffee and tea. The picnic tables will be available outside, should you desire to visit outdoors.
Our 9:30 meditation will be brought back in once we are livestreaming the service so that Deana can have practice time with our vocalists.
Children are always welcome in the service and Children’s Church will resume in the fall.
I know that many of you are excited to be coming back and we are excited to have you. I do want to caution, however, that we must meet everyone where they are and remember our core values of loving, accepting, compassionate and welcoming. When we are demonstrating these values, we will have a great experience, as will others.
By the way, check out the bulletin board in the hallway to see what we have been up to while not meeting. Pretty impressive…thanks Trish Vogel and Barbara Sparrow.
The message this week is Imagine with Me! This will be a more interactive service than we normally have.
You are a blessing in my life,
Rev. Patricia Bessey
