We love our wild cards when playing games of chance. And in the game of life, we are occasionally dealt unexpected, sometimes surprising, and always positive ideas and events that add spark and sparkle to our otherwise routine days. Wild cards can be like tasting a new spice in a traditional family recipe—or like the pop of color added by pinning a bright flower on a favorite hat.
Summers at Unity Spiritual Community have traditionally been a time when we take a break and look at the lighter side of life. The summer of 2017 is no exception. We literally will be taking a break from our usual style of Sunday service with our monthly Coffee Break service beginning on June 11.
Another wild card is popping up this coming Sunday, June 4, when we introduce Conversations with Carla. This monthly summer series will take place after the Sunday service, meeting informally over refreshments. In this casual setting, we will explore some of the paradigm-shifting ideas and events shaping our contemporary world.
As we prepare for this Sunday when we will take a look at alien abductions, we remember the following spiritual principles: God is All That Is, God’s laws are infinite and eternal, and all beings are created by the same loving Spirit.
Yes, this promises to be a wild card summer—but then again, we have been born in a wild card era, a unique time in history, one that sparkles with surprise. Let us come together and embrace the lighter side of life, love and laughter!
