With hurricanes Harvey and Irma hitting our neighbors this week, we feel called to help those who have been affected. Because we are spiritual beings and each a part of the great Whole, the tapestry of life, we are called to assist and to give way to Love.
Yet sometimes our motivation for giving is based on thinking that we “should” give, or that we “ought to” give. When we give from this place, it is outer giving; giving from our ego, which can leave us feeling drained, depleted and even resentful.
In contrast, when we give from within, from our spirit, from our own authentic self sharing our inner gifts, we are filled and blessed, as is the receiver of our gift. We become conduits for Spirit’s expression in the world.
Join us Sunday for the beautiful music of Karie Hillery, and a new look at how we fit into the tapestry of life when we answer the call of our own spirit and authentic self. I look forward to sharing my Sunday with you and seeing you there.
Rev. Jennifer Spear
I am an integral part of Life, of the tapestry of humanity and of Spirit expressing Itself as the all. Today I bring the fullness of myself to life and come to the world as who I was born to be. I share my gifts, talents and expertise with those around me. In doing so, I contribute to making the world a better place. And so it is.
