Rev. Henley asks the question: “What does it look like to be a person of transformation”? From Soul Matter Sharing: Ok, let’s admit it: we say “no” more often than we can count-or than we are aware of. It’s often our default mode. We are so good at coming up with reasons to say no. Not enough time. Too risky. One has to pick and choose. We don’t deserve it. Delayed gratification. Distrust. I know better. I want to be in control.
Sunday – April 9th
11am Celebration of Life Services: Rev. Lillie Henley
When we are in despair, when we feel as though the world is “not right”, do we depend on others to make our world whole again, or do we take responsibility for our own way of being. From Author Barbara Kingsolver: “In my own worst seasons I’ve come back from the colorless world of despair by forcing myself to look hard, for a long time, at a single glorious thing: a flame of red geranium outside my bedroom window… Until I learned to be in love with my life again. Like a stroke victim retraining new parts of the brain to grasp lost skills, I have taught myself joy, over and over again.”
