Love Grows and Good Always Wins
by Rev.Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
“This train is bound for glory, this train,
This train is bound for glory, this train,
This train is bound for glory,
Don’t ride nothin’ but the righteous and holy
This train is bound for glory, this train.” Traditional Folksong
As I watch the people of this country stand for the goodness that is our birthright, this song goes through my head. This world is bound for glory, this world… Now, I turn within.
There is a Life so large and ancient that it precedes time. It is Time Immemorial, Creation, and Good. Each time that this Life creates, It is Good. Each Good is imbued with all that Good is – Peace, Love, Happiness, Wholeness, Creativity, Health, Balance. This Good is bound for Glory.
I am made of this Good. I, too, am imbued with all that good that is me – peace, love, happiness, wholeness, creativity, health, and balance. My good is bound for glory. By this alliance, I am made righteous and holy. As I know this for me, I know this for the sweet sister or brother who reads this prayer. You are the glory of Good, made righteous and holy.
I affirm and declare good. No matter the appearance and no matter the untruth, Good always wins. Good lives independent of any of us and yet is part of each of us. I affirm and declare that all of us rise together today as brothers and sisters of humanity and support each other with all that we have – love, joy, happiness, and a solace that evolves and supports. I affirm and declare that any fear or loathing that has found its way into my heart now leaves never to return. In its place, Love grows and I know that I know that I know. I am faith and live in the knowing of Good. This is a good day.
I am so grateful for this day; so grateful for my good. I am grateful that my spiritual community knows the Truth and lives from that space of knowing. I am happy that all I have ever known is steeped in this goodness and truth and that my life is filled with blessings beyond my wildest dreams. This is a good day.
Knowing that my life is filled and that all is well, I release my word back to the Law and know this prayer is done. And so it is. Amen.
