Minister’s Message for February
Open to Possibilities
“The possible’s slow fuse is lit by the Imagination.”
~ Emily Dickinson
I love the story of the young man who, arriving late to pick up his take-home final math test, copied down the “extra credit assignment” written on the blackboard without realizing that the professor had written the problem as a joke. The problem had stumped mathematicians forever. When he turned in his final, he included the solution to the problem on the board. He was surprised to receive a personal visit the next evening from his professor who seemed giddy and slightly drunk! The professor kept saying, “You’ve done it! You’ve done it!!” Politely the young man asked what the professor meant. “You’ve solved the unsolvable math problem from the board! You are now famous!” The young man explained that he hadn’t realized the problem was unsolvable, having arrived late that day, and admitted that he had stayed up all night working with it to get the solution.
We, too, may have life problems that appear to be unsolvable. And, like the young man, we may need to wrestle with them – but believing and knowing that there IS a solution goes a very long way to opening our minds to possibilities we may not have even considered.
All month Rev. Zina and I will be speaking about the ways we can open to a greater view and experience. Please join us!
Sunday Service at the Center
10:30 AM Celebration Service
The Celebration Service is filled with music and song, spiritual practice and an inspiring message. Children are a delightful part of this Service before spending time in small groups with their teachers. This Service is the spiritual and social gathering point for our community – and we love welcoming newcomers to our home!
Our Sunday Service is inspiring and joyful with an uplifting message. Best of all, we apply spiritual principles to daily life that help you contemplate the issues you may be facing. Join us in person or virtually!
We honor all paths to God/Spirit and can help you experience a personal relationship with It. When It is the focus of our spirituality, then other areas of our lives fall into place: we are happier, we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth, and help bring peace and harmony to the world.
