Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 09/28/17

October 1st is BAREFOOT SUNDAY

Moses was told by God, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”  The message was a profound one because God was calling Moses to be a #force4good.  If you remember the story, Moses attempted to argue with God and give all the reasons why he could not give his time, talents and treasures in becoming part of the solution to the world’s issues of the day. 

 

So what are some of the issues of the day?  I know – don’t get us started! 

 

1.  Did you know that a majority of the world’s poor go barefoot?  

This fact is not because

they are spending time putting their feet in the grass;

it is because in the moment, they do not have shoes. 

Many of these same people live in places

where they walk through trash,

human waste and garbage dumps

everyday.

 

2.  Did you know that some of the causes of disease

in the same areas where people are going barefoot

seem to be related to cuts, abrasions and infections

through the soles of their feet? 

 

3.  Did you know that approximately

3,000,000,000 people on this planet

live on $2.50 a day or less? 

Did you know that many of their basic needs go unmet? 

 

Unity of Music City declared in 2016 “We Choose Peace” and in 2017 we declared one way we would add to the peace on our planet was by being a #force4good.  I affirm you will join uson Sunday morning for this awesome service “in bare feet”.  The amazing Jamie London and her daughter Stella will be a part of our Special Music.  Come Birth a new reality by discovering your greatest self.   Be a #force4good in this world. 

 

Namaste’

Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 09/07/17

“I am peace in the midst of all matters.”  What an awesome affirmation as we prepare for Unity’s 2017 World Day of Prayer, and what does that statement really mean? To me it means what happens after I affirm:

“I am a soul of love,a heart of peaceand an expression of joy.”

Mahatma Gandhi stated, “There is no way to peace, peace is the way.”  In a world where sometimes it seems every path to peace has proved futile, maybe we could try the strategy of being the presence of peace itself and create a way where there has been no way. 

The energy or #force4good lies deep within each of us.  We live and move and have our beingness in the substance and energy that created everything we see.  If it sometimes seems hard to remember then, join us on Sunday morning as we remind each other.  I will be joined on the stage with our Prayer Chaplains.  We will be sharing parts of our training around being the very presence of peace when there appears to be chaos and turmoil around us. 

Teal Davis, who was Huckleberry Finn in Big River, and the amazing Jamie London will be joining us for special music.  You don’t want to miss this historic day as we Induct our 2017/2018 Prayer Chaplains and begin a new chapter at Unity of Music City toward choosing peace in each and every situation.                            

Peace.

It does not mean to be in a placeWhere there is no noise, trouble or hard work.It means to be in the midst of those thingsAnd still be calm in your heart.
