Having felt joy, happiness, peace
Do I return to business as usual?
Having felt unconditional love
Do my thoughts still hold resentment?
Having experienced release
Do I once again feel overburdened?
Having entered light
Do I naturally return to my darkness?
Having touched the hem of the garment
Do I let go to grasp my shroud of shame?
Having been washed
Do I once again need cleansing?
The events of Bethlehem cannot be taken lightly,
They cannot go unacknowledged.
The events of Bethlehem change everything
And business as usual can no longer exist.
I am transformed
I am challenged
The Christ Spirit walks with me always
I know I am now forever changed.
Rev. Jefferson Beeker
We live our lives one thought at a time. Let each of those thoughts really count for something wonderful.
Be prepared to change your thinking and change your life. Please join us each Sunday at 5:30 PM in our Social Hall at First Christian Church, North Hollywood, CA for our Contemporary Celebration and Praise service. Come as you are and enjoy an hour of great music from our wonderful band and singers, inspiring messages and good fellowship. Those things in life that you have been seeking have also been seeking you. Now is a good time to receive them.
Also, join me on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8 PM for an hour of guided and silent meditation, reflection, affirmation and prayer. As always, we will share communion together. Everyone is welcome.
