December 2010 - The Gifts of the Holy Days
As the world’s religions observe their respective Holy Days (Ramadan, Hanakkah, Christmas, etc.) this month, we too will celebrate this holy season by gathering each week to experience the priceless holiday gifts of Joy, Power and Peace.
Talk 1 - Receiving the Gifts of the Holy Days
Today, we will set the tone for this sacred season by intentionally choosing to RECEIVE the gifts of Joy, Power and Peace.
Talk 2 – Being the Gifts of the Holy Days
After we intentionally choose to receive the holy gifts of Joy, Power and Peace, we then are called to BE the gifts.
Talk 3 – Giving the Gifts of the Holy Days
Once we embody the gifts of Joy, Power and Peace, our final step in living a holy life is to GIVE the gifts.
Talk 4 – Creating Gifts Anew
We conclude 2010 in a unique and empowering way. By combining elements of a sacred Taize service with the ritual of a burning bowl ceremony, we gather to set the tone for a new year bound to be filled with an abundance of Holy gifts.
As I allow myself to receive, to be and to give the gifts of Joy, Peace and Power, I experience them tenfold in my life. I am so happy and grateful to be living this joy-filled, peace-filled and power-filled life!
