                                                                             SACRED SUNDAYS 

As an ordained Interfaith Reverend, I am so happy to invite you to join me Sundays in September for Gentle Yoga on the Beach followed by COMMUNITY PRAYER AND SHARE . This is an inclusive spiritual gathering, welcoming all paths and those who walk them. There will be uplifting readings and meditations taken from a variety of world religions including Christianity,  a discussion time and a time where we join our hearts in prayer for personal needs, our families, our community, our nation, our world, our Earth and all beings who need healing.  Prayer is a powerful action we can take in these challenging times.  See the schedule below for dates and times.

                                  * Please bring a beach chair for the prayer and share time.

A prayer I wrote for us...

Creator, Divine source of Love in whom we live and move and have our being… You are beyond our mental comprehension yet felt with the presence of each and every breath we take. Your presence is made known wherever there emerges kindness and compassion. Our intention is to allow your love to soak us and fill us to overflowing, to welcome your unconditional love and acceptance and guidance. By your grace grant that we may feel connected to you, to ourselves, to one another and to our experience of being alive.  Despite our preference for comfort, may we be able to honor both the shadow and light within our human experience. It amazes us that in this moment people and animals everywhere in this world are engaged in the Universal Breath, all breathing in and breathing out as One, the plants are also a part of this Universal Breath as they breathe in our exhalation and breathe out oxygen...providing our next inhalation! One planet breathing together… every moment of every day … surely all is Holy, all are equal, all is Love.

Amen


May the angels of light
glisten for us this day.
May the sparks of God’s beauty
dance in the eyes of those we love.
May the universe
be on fire with Presence for us this day.
May the new sun’s rising
grace us with gratitude. …
Let heaven’s winds stir the soil of our soul
and fresh awakenings rise within us.
May the mighty angels of light
glisten in all things this day.
May they summon us to reverence,
may they call us to life.

- John Phillip Newell, Praying with the Earth

The happy heart is one that is filled with gratitude. A simple ritual such as bowing and breathing deeply to greet each day awakens joy in us. Each day, each season, each cycle offers something of beauty. Let us notice and give thanks.

 - Diane Mariechild, Open Mind

 Stepping out of the busyness, stopping our endless pursuit of getting somewhere else, is perhaps the most beautiful offering we can make to our spirit.
-Tara Brach

 Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to yourself. You may not be perfect, but you are all you’ve got to work with. The process of becoming who you will be begins first with the total acceptance of who you are.

- Bhante Henepola Gunaratana, Mindfulness in Plain English


I send you all wishes for peace, health & happiness, now and always.
