From My Heart: Reverend Jyoti

My heart says a great big THANK YOU to all those who came to spruce up the Center at the end of May, and all those who painted the Celebration Hall last Sunday. What a great group, and how nice it is to have the Celebration Hall all spruced up. Next project is filling the Celebration Hall with color!

Speaking of color, I am LOVING all the green from the rains we’ve had, the colorful flowers that seem to be blooming everywhere, and the colorful rainbow flags that celebrate Gay Pride. We live in such a wonderfully diverse world – so many colors and religions and ways of expressing. It is SO important that we honor one another, remembering that we are all expressions of the One Life which goes by so many names.

Thanks also to all who came to make the potluck at our house a delicious and fun time. Time to connect is such a wonderful thing. Stay tuned for the info about the June Potluck at Carol and Mike Farrell’s. I’ve heard that Candice may bring a bouncy house for the kids!

Our theme for June (within our 2017 theme of Values Based Spiritual Living) is Spiritual Living Through Accountability. Being willing to accept responsibility for our choices is an important key to spiritual living. It means being willing to answer for our actions and being willing to live in such a way that our words and deeds match the spiritual truth of our being. Are we walking our talk? Are we seeing results in our life that we’d like to see? If so, let’s stay open to Spirit’s guidance as to what magnificence is next. If not, NOW is the time to plant seeds for the future we want to step into.

June is a great time to clean out closets. Bring your gently used shoes to the Center for our June Outreach Project, which is Soles4Souls. Let’s face it: if you haven’t worn those shoes in a while, chances are they aren’t going to suddenly become your comfy favorites, so bring them in for a good cause. Out with the old to make room for new energy in your life!

Candice Ortiz has been doing some fun stuff with the kids on Sunday mornings, so if there are kids in your life that would like some fun, very positive time, bring them. Kids are ALWAYS welcome!

May your month be filled with prosperity and abundant love. In June, I’ll be in the office on Thursday afternoons from 2:30-5:30, as usual. I’m also in the office at other times by appointment. Feel free to call if you’d like to come by to chat or to pray. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday mornings!

Journey joyfully, knowing that you are blessed and you ARE a blessing!

Love, Rev. Jyoti
