I am still reeling after our 18th school shooting in the United States since January 1st, 2018. That averages about 3 per week thus far. How are you feeling? Do you agree that thoughts & prayers are no longer enough? Our young people deserve better and we are the ones who are supposed to be caring for and protecting the most vulnerable among us.
If you are inspired to join in a larger conversation about gun violence, consider coming to Fountain Street Church this Sunday, February 25, with other members and supporters of Moms Demand Action in Grand Rapids. There you can discern what YOU can do for the gun violence prevention movement while learning about upcoming events, legislative work, 2018 elections, and strategy moving forward.
When times are uncertain & fearful, my go-to is 'lovingkindness meditation' May this help you, as it does me, to cultivate peace within self and inspire within you the personal responsibility to cultivate peace in our world.
May I be happy.
May I be at peace,
May I be well.
May my heart open.
May you be happy.
May you be at peace,
May you be well.
May your heart open.
May we be happy.
May we be at peace,
May we be well.
May our hearts open.
And so it is.
Deep peace & abundant love,
***We are back in the SOCIAL HALL!!! :)
