MAY THEME: I CARE FOR THE POOR
MEDITATION starts promptly at 10:30am and SERVICE begins at 11am
May 5th - Compassion
Compassion literally means to be with someone in their suffering. In a world that seems to be experiencing so much suffering, how can we be a beneficial presence for others without taking on the pain ourselves?
Music: Cheryl Barlow
May 12th – Love Thy Neighbor
The master teacher gave this great commandment - to love thy neighbor as thyself. How do we begin to do that in a world that gives us so many challenging people to love?
May 19th – Judge Not
The nature of God is incarnated in every soul. Everyone is whole, [perfect and complete - just as they are. When we judge, ourselves or others, we are entertaining a sense of separation from the One Presence.
May 26th – First... Choose Peace
Rev. Laura Hallett
Compassion, like all spiritual works, begins in our own consciousness. Before we can be a place of compassion for others, we must find it within ourselves.
