02/25/2021

Our 6-week Book Study Class With Rev. Steve THE I OF THE STORM: Embracing Conflict, Creating Peace by Dr. Rev Gary Simmons begins next Wednesday!

In this book we learn to go beyond merely managing the conflict in our lives to actually embracing the conflict, allowing it to teach us what we otherwise might not learn. This process leads to peacemaking ... whether it be within ourselves, in our relationships, or as a result of outside circumstances.

Simmons integrates spiritual principles, biblical quotes, and martial arts philosophy (he is a fourth-degree black belt in tae kwon do) as well as concepts from modern science--especially quantum theory. In this way he points us to the "I" of the storm of conflict, to our spiritual Self, as the means of realizing peace in our lives.

Wednesdays, March 3 – April 7, 2021

The holiday season is over, but food insecurity in our region is still surging. Our Social Justice Team is sponsoring a digital food drive for the Capital Area Food Bank. In light of the risks presented by COVID-19, the food drive will be digital, rather than actual physical food items. Our financial contributions go much farther given the quantity discounts available to CAFB. And, our funds can be directed to the items most in need. Our contributions to CAFB will help alleviate food insecurity to many of our neighbors in great need at this difficult time. To make a donation, click here:

Happy Sunday everyone💜

-Sunday Prayer-
Here's to the bridge-builders,
the hand-holders, the light-bearers,
those extraordinary souls
wrapped in ordinary lives
who quietly weave threads of humanity
into an inhumane world.
They are the unsung heroes
in a world at war with itself.
They are the whisperers of hope
that peace is possible.
Look for them in this present darkness.
Light your candle with their flame.
and then go. Build bridges. Hold hands.
Bring light to a dark and desperate world.
Be the hero you are looking for.
Peace is possible. it begins with us.
-L.R. Knost
Amen.

Good morning everyone,
Here is the reading from this morning's 9 AM meditation. May it support us as we move through the coming days.
Let us all choose peace.
Much love and peace to you all,
Rev Sheryl

Affirmation - Inner peace is only a breath a way.

When outer circumstances seem to keep me from feeling calm, serene and in my knowing, I shift my awareness inward and rediscover inner peace.
As I close my eyes and concentrate on my breathing, the day's worries and concerns melt away. I remember that peace is my true nature. I allow that peace to express with one thought, one breath, one prayer at a time.
Perceived conflict and chaos in the outer world have no permanence. Peace is not a lack of conflict, but an abiding realization that my perceptions do not define or control me. I create my life experience, knowing all is for me, through the conscious breaths I take and the thoughts I choose to think. I choose peace.

I want to once again thank Sheryl for introducing us to the song "This Inner Peace" by Marcy Baruch and thank John Paul for his beautiful voice in singing this song on 11/15/20. It is so peaceful and brings me to my center. You can listen to the song again on UOG youtube:
