A Message fromYour Ministerial Team

WAVELENGTH OF LOVE

Each one of us is a noble seeker.  Every day we stand at the edge of life’s challenges with a decision to make.  Do I follow the voice of doubt or fear? Or, do I faithfully surrender to the heart of God which invites me to open to a vision of life that is without limits?  Big questions with all sorts of possible consequences.  If we hesitate, even for a moment, doubts can take over as quickly as water pouring through a hole in a plastic bag.  The voice of fear and doubt has a very loud, impressive voice and it is ready to stop any forward movement, while we turn and walk away from what could be the most exciting moment in our lives.

Just as quickly, however, is the penetration of the voice from the heart of God when we choose to listen – swishing into our whole being with no leaks because it is inward movement, sealed by the covenant offered to us by the very Being of Love.  As in all moments of genuine love, this movement within your whole heart reveals that there are limitless dimensions of yourself that you have not yet experienced.  Such is the power of the wave of love when it connects with your inner essence.

This Sunday, together, we will give ourselves to love and hold the treasures of the heart in our hands, as we celebrate the things that are yet to be fulfilled in our lives.  What are they?  That depends on each of us individually, but there are seven different actions we can take, to help us find them. More about them on Sunday.

LOVE recognizes no barriers.  It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls, arriving at its destination vibrantly alive and full of hope.  ~Maya Angelou 

Blessings,

Sherry
