Ten amazing people made room in their holiday schedules and came to Tapestry Unitarian Congregation for . . . TA DA!!!
A HeART of Spirituality workshop!
Reverend Kent Doss talked a bit about the history of communion before making the prayer/contemplation cards, The group was small enough for each person to share what their cards represented. The evening ended with a discussion about virtues.
Card #1 – The love of God, love of self – the spark within or what is holy to you
Card #2 – Virtues that connect you – unity with family, friends, colleagues and the world
Here’s the first group of cards and the spiritual principle of unity, oneness and love guiding my choice of focus for the cards.
Can you tell which cards reflect LOVE and which cards express VIRTUES?
“All the divine Manifestations (Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus Christ, Muhammad, and, in more recent times, the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh) have proclaimed the oneness of God and the unity of mankind.
They have taught that men should love and mutually help each other in order that they might progress. Now if this conception of religion be true, its essential principle is the oneness of humanity.”
“The fundamental truth of the Manifestations* is peace. This underlies all religion, all justice. The divine purpose is that men should live in unity, concord and agreement and should love one another.” – Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace
*Throughout the ages, God has sent Divine Messengers known as Manifestations of God among them – Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus Christ, Muhammad, and, in more recent times, the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh)—to cultivate humanity’s spiritual, intellectual and moral capacities.
