We had a great discussion at noon last Sunday about Unity’s 1st principle (God is good and everywhere present). What does it mean to believe that good is present even in the most horrendous of tragedies?
As we ended our discussion, it became clear to me that one of the most important ways we can know the good is in our connection with each other. People expressed a longing for real community.
Deeply honest and authentic.
Loving each other through it – that’s one of the most powerful ways we find the good. And I heard people yearning for in-person connection. (We decided to continue these Sunday noon discussions monthly, and maybe work our way towards meeting more frequently!)
This Sunday I am going to reflect on the sometimes “hidden” ways that good shows up in our lives. I invite you to remember examples in your own life of how this has happened.
Quote to ponder: “For the knowledge of God (Good), as we have seen, is not an intellectual exercise but a soul exercise. It is an intimate knowing by experience, and it is love that leads us to such an experience. For this reason the knowledge of God is as available to the simplest and most humble among us as it is to the great and intellectually gifted….” ~John Sanford
