Sunday Topics For January

THEME: HOW THEN SHALL WE LIVE

How can we live a life of meaning, purpose and grace? As we embark on a new year we get to explore what’s still true for us and how we might serve the love that we are.

Jan. 2 WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

When we awaken to our interconnectedness we are called to serve what is whole amidst the chaos. As we live in the questions we can start with, “What’s still true?”. The clarity begins to strengthen as we transform anger into courage, sadness into compassion and confusion into resolve. We belong together.

Jan. 9 COMING HOME TO OURSELVES

We ask the question “Who am I?” From this we return to a hidden wholeness that is our true nature. Arriving home in this place of Truth we initiate real change within and without.

Jan. 16 CHANGE IS POSSIBLE

It has been said that the only one who wants change is a baby with a dirty diaper. Although we resist necessary change it is heartening to realize it is possible.

Jan. 23 SEEING MORE CLEARLY

When the lens of our perception is cleansed the world is seen with fresh eyes. Changing the way we look at things enables a shift both within and without.

Jan. 30 EXQUISITE BALANCE

Equanimity holds everything. Holding everything in balance we are able to be present with all of life’s drama in spacious stillness and radiant calm.
