For your consideration…

Of course, the above lyrics are from the Michael Jackson song “Man in the Mirror.” Yet when they were given to me today, the words were “the man in the middle.” Indeed our message today is about the middle.

We are asked, what battle can be won from the corner? If we want change, we have to be willing to quit shouting from our corners. If we want change, we have to be willing to leave our corners and meet in the middle.

Consider the middle the “safe place” where ideas and solutions can blossom and bloom. Today we are asked to leave our corners.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Affirm…“I am loved.”

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

-Take a step out of our corner to it.

-Drink lots of water.

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

What made me smile yesterday…

-One of my classes this year is unusually tough. Yesterday, they were awesome. Ahhh.

-A good book.

-An early bedtime.

-Catching up with Alex and Jackie.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
