again & again, we are called to listen

Sometimes in the stillness of the quiet, if we listen, / We can hear the whisper in the heart / Giving strength to weakness, courage to fear, hope to despair. —Howard Thurman, Meditations of the Heart

We believe in the power of Love

“In the flush of love’s light / we dare be brave / and suddenly we see / that love costs all we are / and will ever be. / Yet it is only love which sets us free.
Dr. Maya Angelou in her poem “Touched by an Angel.”

Healing and Hope

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.” ― David Richo

Women of the Dream

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
– Harriet Tubman

Comfort and Joy

“Today the Magi gaze in deep wonder at what they see: heaven on earth, earth in heaven, humanity in God, God in humanity, one whom the whole universe cannot contain now enclosed in a tiny body.” — Peter Chrysologus

Leaving Bethlehem

The overwhelming message of the Christmas story is the assurance that we, too, are children of the Holy One. In this, our very presence is a gift if we will only allow the Spirit to move in and through us. Every day of our ordinary lives, we can show up — be present — and proclaim the assurance of hope, peace, joy, and love to those who need it most. Rev. Shirley Bowen
