At 11 a.m. Rev Maur Horton shares “Fatherhood — A Perpetual Conversation.”

The Power of Conversation

Conversation often drives personal and social change. We declare the truth as we see it. We stand up for it. When others hear and see the truth we proclaim, it can take root in their hearts. Truth is based in universal reality which lies open to every person everywhere.
One of the challenges of being a parent is to let inner truth come forward in all our conversations. This can be especially challenging when we deal with a stubborn three year old or a rambunctious teenager. The challenge comes in conversation with any child who is expressing opinions, desires or attitudes that we do not espouse.
The grace of being a father or mother, or being in a position of guardianship or educating a child is precisely to bring forward the deep recognition and realization of the inner divinity in oneself and in a child. Then with the help of divine love we can respect that inner truth during the conversation.
We will discover additional aspects of the dynamic power of conversation when we meet to share this Sunday’s message. We will hear principles that can revitalize all our conversations.
Remember speak your truth. It will help us grow in love, abundance and in prosperity as individuals and as a congregation. Authentic conversation is a powerful stimulant to better living.
Rev Maur

See the new life arising from the dark mud ponds?

Transform Wounds Into Wisdom

Thich Nhat Hanh says “No mud. No lotus.” The beautiful lotus flower grows out of the dankest muddy pond. Transform Wounds Into Wisdom provides an opportunity for participants to bring the light of love and compassion to an experience that causes pain so that they can discover the wisdom that is rooted there. Regardless of the source of the pain, this approach allows each of us to reframe our experience and free up space for new perspectives, new ideas and new ways of living in the world.
