The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered "Man.  Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.  Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.  And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

I would guess that a fundamentalist or evangelical Christian probably would not be comfortable in one of our congregations.  Our free and open approach to the study and practice of religion might not be consistent with their world views.  But if individuals with such views chose to associate with us, and were willing to afford us the same freedom of religious exploration as I hope we would grant to them, then there is no reason why a person with such views should not be welcome into our community.

           INSPIRATION FROM MARY OLIVER
 

What I Have Learned So Far

Meditation is old and honorable, so why should I
not sit, every morning of my life, on the hillside,
looking into the shining world?  Because, properly
attended to, delight, as well as havoc, is suggestion.
Can one be passionate about the just, the
ideal, the sublime, and the holy, and yet commit
to no labor in its cause?  I don't think so.

 

All summations have a beginning, all effect has a
story, all kindness begins with the sown seed.
Thought buds toward radiance.  The gospel of
light is the crossroads of -- indolence, or action.

 

Be ignited, or be gone.


~ Mary Oliver ~
