Summer is in Full Swing!

one for all all for one

Greetings Friends,

Summer is in full swing and lots of folks are going on vacation! Isn’t it wonderful to get away from the routine, see new sights, and explore new places? We are blessed with the freedom to travel from sea to shining sea in the USA. As we discover this month during our study of The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, by don Miguel Ruiz, the greatest thing that binds us is our personal belief system… and we can change that! On Sunday, July 8th, we explore the First Agreement: Be Impeccable with Your Word. I hope you’ll join us on this journey to freedom.

Being impeccable with your word means “saying only what you mean“-and it means so much more than that. According to don Miguel Ruiz, it also means using “the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.” It means saying what needs to be said: speaking your truth with love. And it is from that understanding of “impeccability” that I share my thoughts with you as I ponder Independence Day this July.

Blessed with Freedom

We, the citizens of the United States of America, are truly blessed with freedom. There are many in this world, and even in this country, who don’t share the personal freedom that most of us take for granted. We can dress as we please, live where we want, and choose our professions at will. We have the privilege of practicing our religious and spiritual beliefs without interference from our government. We also take our physical freedom for granted. We may be given a ticket for speeding, but we don’t expect to be imprisoned or killed for it! Not everyone has the privilege of taking freedom for granted.

Freedom from Fear

Those of us who have never faced persecution can hardly imagine what it’s like to live in constant fear of violence or death. Freedom from fear is one of our most basic human needs and rights. This July, may we appreciate the freedom that we have, and then let’s also take it a step further. Let us hold a vision of safety and freedom for all those seeking asylum due to threats of violence and death. Let us also pray for those who feel so powerless that they feel compelled to restrict other’s freedom in exercising their authority. Perhaps they have the greatest need for freedom from fear.

I believe our Creator intended freedom for all of us. May we come to see ourselves and others in the light of our true nature–we are all spiritual beings having a human experience. When we remember and live from that Truth, we are truly free.

Light and Love to you,

Rev. Cindy

Youth Yoga and Mindfulness Sunday

Healing Benefits of Yoga

youth-yoga-mindfulnessOur youth ministry brings the therapeutic and healing benefits of yoga and mindfulness to our youth. Starting in January 2018 we will be learning basic yoga positions combined with creative and practical mindfulness tools to use in daily life. The pressures of growing up in a fast-paced and “plugged-in” world do not allow our youth the opportunity to slow down observe their growing minds and bodies. With each breath, we will be cultivating a greater sense of well-being.

Eden Foster, a soon to be a certified children’s yoga and mindfulness instructor by the Mirador Yoga and Creativity School will facilitate class. The 2nd Sunday at 11:00 is Yoga and Mindfulness for our pre-school/elementary class. The 4th Sunday at 11:00 is Yoga and Mindfulness for our Uniteens and Y.O.U. (middle school and high school) class. Youth may join these classes at anytime.
