It is Sunday, and as such appropriate to have an inspirational talk.  There are a lot of empty pews in churches around the world today.   Makes you think that it isn’t the place but the charity in our hearts that matter.  Like many sermons, this may fall on deaf ears.  It is my hope that it will give somebody something to think about and perhaps change hearts along the way.

I think that what is happening in the world right now has proven the Church is not a place but a feeling.  That feeling can be created anywhere we are.   That is why I always feel at home in a church, a synagogue, a spiritual center, or in the midst of the woods.

I have struggled with this time alone, like many keeping busy.   In this, it is unsettling the number of people that are conducting on-line galleries and classes for a fee under the guise of a Church or Spiritual Center.   I just said something that will make many uncomfortable.  But I seem to thrive at these uncomfortable conversations.

My own development circle has gone on-line with the option that if someone felt like they could help the church, that they could send them a donation.   I spoke with the Church and they too were uncomfortable, even though they are hurting financially.  It was the need to serve those that worship with them that became important, not the collection plate.

What Spirit Really Wants From Us

If you are really in need of hearing from someone in Spirit, there are those that you can reach out to.   Looking to replace income  at the expense of others, please rethink this.   Service to others is just that, Spirit responds accordingly.   I know and understand how difficult it can be in this unsettling time.  In my eyes this is selling Spirituality by the pound.  My choice to serve in a different way.  My challenge is to not judge.

I leave you with this song, which is a beautiful way to end my little talk.   Gretchen recently sang it in a church that George and I saw her.  She is an amazing singer/songwriter and she called this her hymn she wrote.   Everyone has free will, I see that in this song.  What Spirit really wants from us to be loving, compassionate and help one another.
