10-20-13 Sacred Life

 Sacred living requires sacred practices.  Sacred practices require something called discipline.  For most of us, discipline does not have a positive connotation.  Discipline comes from the root word "disciplina" meaning "to learn, to be a student."  Sacred Living is living life as a student.  Remember, we are all students in the school of life.  Welcome to Earth School 101.  Music by Jessica Fogle.

October 13: Sacred Love

Reasoning by Pastor Sherry Petro-Surdel

The mystic Sufi poet, Rumi, wrote, "O, lovers!  The religion of the love of God is not found is Islam alone.  In the realm of love, there is neither belief, nor unbelief."  All religions teach of the love of God.  They also teach us to love one another.  We have an abundance of religions in the world teaching love.  Should we not, therefore, have an abundance of love in the world?  "Don't need no doctor, don't need no pills.  I got a cure for the country ills," sings Sting in the song, "Sacred Love." Click the link below to listen to and/or download Sherry's Reasoning:

October 6: Sacred Listening

Reasoning by Rev. Salvatore Sapienza

On her final show, Oprah Winfrey remarked, ""I've talked to nearly 30,000 people on this show, and all 30,000 had one thing in common: They all wanted validation. Every single person you will ever meet shares that common desire. They want to know: 'Do you hear me? Does what I say mean anything to you?'"  Sacred Listening is learning to be present enough to really hear one another.  Listening is an active part of communion with God and with one another.  In this Reasoning, you will discover what mystics from a variety of faith traditions have taught about becoming more attuned to the voice of the Divine which lives within all of us.  Click the link below to listen to and/or download Sal's Reasoning:
