At times life can seem like a battle between light and darkness. At times we might wonder if the effort it takes to reflect the light of Christ is really worth it. But taking a little jog around Boston this amazingly sunny Spring afternoon I can see the rad metaphor Mother Nature provides for the benefits of patiently nurturing the landscape from the bleak days of winter to the lush greenery and popping color with us now. The winter was totally worth this gorgeousness. Our lesson this week, denouncing animal magnetism, gives a reminder that anything we think of as a force of darkness have no real attractive power of their own. And the light – the amazing, beautiful light – that is embodied in us all is energized by the all power, all presence, all knowing that is the Christ.
“God is infinite, therefore ever present, and there is no other power nor presence.” That presence, “the divine manifestation of God…” is continuously working through every element of us. Whatever and wherever seeds need to sprout, the Christ presence is there with its nurturing light, directing the way: “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
The sun is shining the birds are chirping and we going to hold our Sunday Service in the little park across from (really caddy corner to) the Green Street T stop. If you’re coming from the T stop walk across the street to where the playground is, and we will be camped out on the other side of the fountain in the grass under the trees. 🙂 Look for the group of folks with the blankets and the hugs and love.
Speaking of love; you are loved. Yes, you sweet one reading this post. You are incredibly loved.
See you tomorrow!
