My Homily

I would like to offer up a prayer-poem encouraging us to be responsible to our fellow human beings and to ourselves…

Beloveds, Let us look inward, deeply…past the gatekeepers of arrogance, pride, lust, greed, sloth, anger, fear and aversions. Step into the inner sanctum, the Holy of Holies, where the Shakti energy rises to the natural frequency of Divine Truth. Enter the center of your own vortex where you must stay grounded in stillness. Be in discernment so as not to spin endlessly in your mind’s imagination. Listen to that still voice of your inner Guru, “stop, take a step back, take a breath…” and then with conscious speech say only what is necessary. Stay disciplined in your daily practice filling your soul chalice,so that selfless service pours forth with Divine grace. Be mindful of every word… every thought… every action. Practice compassion. It is far more powerful than tolerance. Keep the tabernacle of your heart open… pure and free to love and be loved. Safe sacred space is our birthright… and our calling is to hold it for all. Forgive yourself and others… in all ways. See beauty, elegance and nobility flowering in each soul. Our purpose in this human form is to unite with the Divine. Be courageous and have faith in the mystery… the unknown, with no attachment to outcomes… even though it is most uncomfortable. Let go of anything that no longer serves… and learn when enough is enough. Because nothing is worth losing our peace… I bow to the Divine within you – Namaste  Reverend Lisa j Winston   Nov 19 2016
