"You are to realize that the Power within you is a Divine Authority. It is a dispenser of the Divine Gifts. It is a giver of life, of joy. It proclaims the Kingdom of Heaven, the harmony of the soul, and the unity of all being." ~Ernest Holmes
The Thing Itself, as Ernest Holmes refers to God, the Divine and all the other names that have been bestowed on the Infinite. I came to embrace “The Thing Itself” as it assisted me in laying down the idea that I had grown up with, that God was a man in the sky. Whatever word is used to describe it, it is probably different for each of us.
Tonight we have the opportunity to define our own God, to give It the identity that we want to assign to It. What would you like your God to look like, feel like, be like? In what ways would It serve you? It’s a fascinating exercise, creating our own personal God.
Our beloved Tom McCurry joins us to give his gift of music and the beauty of his presence. The conversation begins at 7 pm in the North Wing. All are welcome.
