Where Two or More Are Gathered
SYNOPSIS: The highest ideal of family is a supportive nurturing tribe. We didn't all experience that as children, but we can now. One thing our world really needs is our courage and willingness to belong to a family or community that nurtures our highest potential and happiness.
FEATURED MUSICIAN: Michael Robinson
TAKEAWAYS: Our spiritual community is a sanctuary, a safe place to turn to, when we need support. It is a place of growth: a womb in which we are challenged to grow into our best selves. We each play a role in creating this sacred community by supporting one another. This idea of community isn't unique to USCNI. It is possible to create sacred community whenever and wherever we allow the consciousness of the Christ to be present in us in order to bring forth the highest and best in ourselves and others. Return to this idea whenever a sense of conflict arises. Remember that we are all hearts and souls with sacred potential and that it is up to us to find the best in each other.
As I conclude my August series, and my time with all of you at USCNI, I will be sharing what I believe is one of the most important things to consider in our desire to be a part of Conscious Evolution on our planet. It's also one of the things we struggle with the most.
It's simple but not easy...we have to work together. Jesus, who metaphysically represents the highest awakened consciousness, says in Matthew 18:20, “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” I believe this scripture can remind us not only do we have greater strength, wisdom, and support for our awakening when we come together, but we are each other's greatest teachers.
When we can forgive those who have made mistakes, love those who persecute us (or disagree with our opinions), and stay open-hearted despite difficult circumstances, we will be what the future of our world needs most...conscious revolutionaries.
I am so grateful for our time together and I am looking forward to another Sunday filled with great music. The featured guest performer is Michael Robinson. I know Michael’s music is going to be a perfect complement. I hope you are there to enjoy it with me.
In loving faith and service,
