Sunday Celebration Service 11am
"Love, the Mechanism for Change"
with Reverend Christine Capshew
music by Dana Agnellini
The essence of Love is woven through every faith tradition. In its purest form, unconditional love is designed to strip away all that is not needed and enliven all that is. A Course in Miracles reminds us in an effort to help us see with new eyes that everything is a call for love. Knowing that only love is real, I am able to re-center and feel more connected with myself and the world around me. Charles Fillmore reminds us that when love harmonizes the consciousness we find our outer affairs are put in order and that where once there seemed to be opposition and fear, cooperation and trust prevail. Breathing these words in, I am reminded that the vibration of Love that flows through me is the very mechanism for change. Swami Vivekananda says it best, “The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him – that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.” Saying ‘yes’ to Love can sometimes can be the most difficult thing we do, and yet, when we do everything that is not love falls away. Join me Sunday as we explore and experience Love in its many forms.
Rev. Christine Capshew is an Ordained Interfaith and Interspiritual Minister. As a Truth student, she is passionate about living the Unity Principals in her life. Christine believes that through doing the inner and outer work she will bring about the changes she wants to see within herself and the world. Christine is inspired by a statement made by Dawna Markova, PhD. “I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which came to me as a seed goes to the next as a blossom and that which came to me as a blossom, goes on as fruit.”
