The Presence of a Loving Power
by Rev. Karen Linsley, Interim Minister
I acknowledge one Source, one Power, one Universal Love, one Magnificence. Some call It God. It does not matter what name I use, what matters is that I feel the presence of a loving Power moving in, as and through me, and I do. I feel God when I move, I hear it when I speak, I see it when I open my eyes and look. I am One with God, and God is One with me.
And so I speak my word now for myself for peace and wisdom. I speak my word for everyone at Rio Grande Center for Spiritual Living. And I speak my word for everyone in our country. That word is peace. That word is wisdom. I speak for peace that moves beyond belief, beyond understanding. It is a peace that shows up as desire to be happy rather than right. It is a peace that shows up as unconditional love for self and fellows. And I speak my word for wisdom. Wisdom that shows up as new, sustainable ideas. Wisdom that shows up as knowing when to speak and when to stay silent. Peace and wisdom. This is my affirmation.
And that affirmation is released now into that law that always says yes, and I am grateful.
And so it is.
