2014 could have been a very stressful and depressing year considering the personal experiences many of us had with family members, colleagues, and friends making their transitions; let alone the number of young Black lives taken by street violence and trigger happy police. When you add to that the wars, conflicts, and tension between the United States, North Korea, and Russia it can take a bit of daily focus on the more positive, life-giving, uplifting aspects of BEing to make it through.
One of our newest offerings for 2015 is A MINUTE OR TWO OF SERENITY, a weekly YouTube presentation from Space for Grace Fellowship (UCC). As the Lord wills, every Wednesday by noon we are planning to send A MINUTE OR TWO OF SERENITY throughout our email, Facebook, and twitter accounts. We’ll start and end with the Serenity Prayer and sandwich a minute or two serenity meditations. The purpose is to practice how to BE still, calm, and conscious of the legacy of the Christ as recorded in John 14:27; and it read “My peace is the legacy I leave to you.”
It is my experience that there is no-thing more soothing, comforting, and restful than peace, particularly peace of mind. One word of caution, peace is not the absence of a turbulent, troubled, agitated life or mind. These things are necessary, however, to know Peace as a PRESENCE, a portal into the NOW where you are at one with the One. Known by many names: Mother earth, heavenly Father, Infinity, Eternal Soul, and, most commonly, Jesus Christ among Christians, the One is all there is and all there is is the One. Everything else is the absence of the One.
If you would like to receive the weekly A MINUTE OR TWO OF SERENITY, please send to us your email address at email@example.com or go to www.spaceforgrace.org and ‘subscribe’ for email updates.
We would love to have your feedback on this new way of adding SOUL FIBER (the grit needed to keep the spiritual channel of communication open and healthy) to our spiritual diet.
Please pray for American and Coalition soul’s killed-in-action,
their families and, especially their children.
