Reverend Michael Moran wraps up his series inspired by the book Setting Your Heart on Fire by author Raphael Cushnir. In the last invitation, Widen Your World, Cushnir illustrates how to treat the entire global community as if it were your own beloved.
Cushnir says ‘One of the best ways to work on yourself is to work on the world. In doing so the deeper truth re-emerges; the two are separate facets of a united whole. Your unity with all of creation now translates into concrete deeds. Working to better the world is what makes the world feel more like home. It’s how your heart heals, grows, and ultimately ignites.’
There may not be many things we can do to change the world at large, but there are many things we can do to clean up our own corner of the world. Are you willing to surrender thoughts, attitudes and conditions that may be limiting your current experience of life? Reverend Michael will offer methods you can use to extend love and help bring peace to your world.
Our musical guest this Sunday is vocalist Mark Soss. Mark will be accompanied by our music director Gwen Gathercoal on piano, keyboard and vocals along with Gary Buettner on guitar and Todd Neel on percussion. Our song leader is Mark Soss.
The world welcomes you.
Every day is overflowing with Divine Appointments.
Before the sun sets upon this day,
I will have an opportunity to keep
at least one Divine Appointment.
Somewhere in today's experience
Someone needs my prayer,
Someone needs my touch,
Someone needs my words of love,
Someone needs my presence of peace.
My appointment may not be with a person.
It may be smelling the fragrance of flowers ,
It may be watching clouds drift by,
It may be listening to rain touch the earth
Or it may be watching the sun set in the sky.
In stillness, comes my awareness
of the time and place of this appointment.
When I keep this Divine Appointment,
I will know it has been a good day.
I will know the part I played in God’s Divine Plan for me.
I will know who I am and who I have come to be.
And I am grateful. Amen
