Rev Patti “Forever and Ever”

Today is all we have. The eternal moment, unfolding forever. Spirit is engendered and embodied in all we see, do and think. Everywhere is holy ground. Every interaction is sacred.
We cannot withhold our light, our good, and expect not to suffer for it. The circulation of the love of God is the life blood of the Universe.

Rev Patti “All the Time”

We are surrounded by good in the high times, and the challenging times. Life is not a series of hills and valleys. It is railroad tracks, positive and negative. Our focus defines our experience.
The stories we tell about our lives are the affirmations of our lives. We become stuck in a narrative of our own creation. And we are at choice, in every moment, to change the course of the story.

Peter Boilland “Fundamentalism vs Spirituality”

We must understand the consciousness of our perspective. Are we looking back, or looking ahead? Rooted in fear, or rooted in faith? Is this a universe of winners and losers? Where God has favorites?
We must beware of the idolatry of certainty. To look for enemies, to long for a past that never existed. These are the paths that lead to exclusion and Us vs Them thinking.

Rev Patti “God is Good”

We say 'God is good', but often that's conditional; it's good when it's going our way. When things go badly, we get to blame God.
We need a higher perspective. That God is the goodness. Not an attribute of personality, but the embodiment of life.
