Let’s have a round of applause for Rev. Todd Glacy! He did a yeoman’s job this weekend with a Peace Meditation concert on Friday night and a stellar talk and music on Sunday. We are so blessed!
Many of you also got to meet Ms. Mari, our new director of our children’s program, on Sunday. She is ready to welcome back the children this Sunday. Bring your children and grandchildren, for she has great plans for them! We are blessed to have a program for our children that teaches love, which is part of Unity principles.
Lastly, Saturday from 12 – 2 p.m. will be Bill Taylor’s 100th birthday party. Stop by to wish him a happy birthday. This is a real tribute to someone who has given so much to our community over the years. He continues to give every Sunday by making the coffee before the service. Once again, we are so blessed!
Todd’s talk was titled “From Grief to Grace,” and it was wonderful! He shared some personal stories of his mom and a powerful dream that he had before she died, which he felt started his grief process, especially the stage of anger. If you didn’t see the service, you can watch it here.
This Sunday, I will be picking up the series I am doing, using the book The Third Coming by Unity author Rev. Jim Rosemergy. Here is a paragraph from the chapter God’s Rebellion: “There seems to be a perpetual call for change. We need stricter gun laws, campaign contribution reform, more presidential and legislative leadership, as a way to resolve national, world and religious conflict without the use of force. Even the neighbors’ kids need to change their habit of playing loud music late at night. And there is more. Innate to our souls is the compelling realization that life is change, and that there is always more, always a greater wholeness seeking expression. In most instances, change will take place over years. People working within the current system will enact reform.”
I share this with you as it was written in 2000…. 22 years later we are still dealing with many of the same issues. However, I am hopeful that change is happening.
Join me on Sunday as we look at — Am I an explorer or defender? Where am I being fundamental?
See you at 10 a.m.
Have a blessed week!
You are a blessing in my life,
Rev. Patricia Bessey
