Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 02/21/19

Valentine’s Day has come and gone and the question is, “Are you choosing love?”  Am I choosing love, or do I save it for some special occasion and then go back to being . . . you fill in the blank with afraid, mad, sad, etc.

Many of us have lived in the darkness for so long we don’t even realize that there is light if we just open the blinds.  And those blinds I am speaking of are the blinds of our heart and mind.  I speak of opening our hearts and minds every Sunday as I pray over our tithes and offerings, and as most things said on a regular basis, those words begin to lose their meaning. 

What does it mean to open our hearts and minds?  It means to surrender to the Holy Spirit for guidance.  Oh, no!  What if I can’t surrender?  What if letting go is too scary of a proposition for me?  What if Holy Spirit chooses to heal it in a way that I don’t like? 

Well,  I suggest you join us on Sunday morning for Love Erases Fear.  When begin to surrender to the Holy Spirit, it takes all the pressure off of me to “fix it or make it ok.”

Yes, I knew some of you needed a reset breath.  Now – that’s better.  The amazing Vic Sorrell will be sharing music with us.  I know you will not want to miss this final lesson about Universal Principle #2: Love is the Underlying Force of Evolution.

Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 02/07/19

When I think of ethics, I think of right and wrong conduct, but when I broaden that thought to the ethics of love I become curious – can there be a right and wrong way to love?  Being a minister I immediately think of I Corinthians 13, a scriptural passage about The Way of Love.  This particular scripture is read at many weddings, and when I am asked to read this passage during a wedding, I usually state that this is a great aspiration, and at the same time a challenge to live day in and day out. 

The verse that always jumps out at me is verse 8 which says:

 

Love never fails.

But where there are prophecies, they will cease;

where there are tongues, they will be stilled;

where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

 

I don’t know about you – but my experience has been love failing – or was is people failing?  So is there a way to love that would not fail?  Some of us are reading The Untethered Soul and Michael Singer speaks of either blocking love or allowing it to flow.  If I allow the love that I am to flow I would create a sacred space in which I would love all people and things with a pure heart.  I would also know that love would conquer all forms of hate  because I am told,  Love Never Fails

I hope you will join us at Unity of Music City on Sunday as we dive deeper into the discussion of The Ethics of Love.  One of our songwriters, Nancy Deckant, will be sharing special music with us. 

Will you Stand for Love?
