January 6 (The Eternal Now)

Letters to a Disciple from The Lord of Healing Love by Carolyn Burd Christie (extract)

Beloved of My Ancient, Daily Heart
I would bring to you this day
the remembrance
of the Eternal Now,
which has been forever,
is now,
and always will be.
It is the point of contact
with God,
with Life itself.
So it is that you live
in two major dimensions:
The time frame of linear moments
that come and go —
These are your future
and your past, —
And the reality of the Eternal Now,
which is the present
without future or past.
This is the true dimension
of Spirit
of Heaven
of Eternity —
of all Love
and every experience.

Letters to a Disciple from The Lord of Healing Love by Carolyn Burd Christie (extract)

Beloved of My Longing Heart,
Though I know all things
and am One
with all that is,
Yet is there a longing —
a divine and holy longing
For the completion
of the work
I came to do,
The bringing into My Fold
of all the wandering sheep
of My Flock,
which the Father gave Me.
My Flock is all people.
My loving care
is for everyone,
no matter their color,
their size or shape,
or their choice of lifestyle
or the circumstances
in which they live.
All are infinitely and eternally beloved
of My Father — our Father —
and of My Self — our Self.
Yet I know that this longing
for the happiness and safety
of My flock
is an aspect of My Love
which desires
that all may share
My Joy.

Event description HERE

I once was lost, but now am found

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we first begun

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.

Amen.

Mary did you know?

“Mary Did You Know”
(originally by Mark Lowry (lyrics) and Buddy Greene (melody))

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would save our sons and daughters?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy has come to make you new?
This Child that you delivered will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will calm the storm with His hand?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little Baby you kissed the face of God?

Mary did you know.. Ooo Ooo Ooo

The blind will see.
The deaf will hear.
The dead will live again.
The lame will leap.
The dumb will speak
The praises of The Lamb.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would one day rule the nations?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
The sleeping Child you’re holding is the great “I am”

Talk on December 18

Walk in or without God

James 2:14–26
Faith Without Works Is Dead

14 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? 17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! 20 Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the al-tar? 22 You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteous-ness”—and he was called a friend of God. 24 You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. 25 And in the same way was not also Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? 26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.

Tao TE Ching – Lao Tzu/60

Governing a large country
is like frying a small fish.
You spoil it with too much poking.
Center your country in the Tao
and evil will have no power.
Not that it isn’t there.
But you’ll be able to step out of its way.
Give evil nothing to oppose
and it will disappear by itself.
