For your consideration….

I don’t know about you but for me these last few days seem heavy full of hate, strife, futility and sadness. It is hard to get away from it in today’s age of media. Even if we turn off the TV, it is on our phones and computers. Every where we go people are talking. Armchair reporters are at once authorities, judge and jurors.

If we feel overwhelmed, it is a reminder for us to let go. We are overwhelmed because we can not fix or solve the situation. We are overwhelmed because we can not control it. That is because it is not our situation to control.

We can only control our own self, our own attitudes. We can refuse to participate in protests spouting hate and pray for wise justice. We can offer up prayers of love and blessings. We can pray for the highest good of all. And then we can let go of the outcome. We can defer to the big guy upstairs. He can and will control our Universe with his Divine Judgment, Wisdom and Timing. We can not always know his purpose but we can know he has a plan and he will execute it perfectly.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”
-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Let go of the negative and be the best you can be. Be the person you want to see.

What made me smile yesterday….


-Breakfast with Lori, Jay and Riley at the Bomber.

-Shannon, Will, AJ, Mackenzie and Andy joined us for dinner and fun.

-Bruce, climbing into bed, “Chris, thank you. That was a really fun time with the guys and their fish stories. That Jay is really smart. You can’t believe all of his stories and how much he knows about fishing.” (Jay is 10.”

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
