A Message fromYour Ministerial Team

What Is Your Vision?

Several months ago, a vision arose within me of restoring the loving connection my older brother and I haven't shared in 30 years.  Our life paths are very different.  While I live and work primarily in one community, my brother is retired and has homes in California, New York and Barbados, which I've never been to.  Yet, soon after my vision, my brother organized a reunion with him, myself, and our father on the Oregon coast. We enjoyed many hours reliving the fun and games of our youth.  A deep and loving connection was undoubtedly felt. 

Sometimes, just opening to our inner vision is enough to make it happen.  But most visions require a bit more attentive persistence to unfold.  Along the way, there may come a time when forces seem stacked against you.  Someone you love and respect may misunderstand you or take personal offense to an innocent mistake.  You may face a physical challenge that slows or halts your progress.  Yet if your vision is true – inspired by a heartfelt calling that serves the highest good of all concerned – you will find an extra reserve of strength and faith.  Holding the course, the winds of resistance will begin to shift.  And what was meant to be...will be.

In loving support of your deepest vision,


P.S.  Several leaders in our congregation have nurtured a vision of bringing our community togetheron Friday evenings to hear wonderful guest speakers.  That’s how The Friday Night Connection was born – and it begins this Friday!  You never know when the right door is going to open to a new vision for life.  Our Friday Night Connection may be that door for you!
