The Path of the Brave Hearted
Loving greetings and welcome to our monthly glimpse into February’s spiritual explorations and theme, “The Path of the Brave Hearted.”
The etymology of the word brave is from the late 15th century’s Middle French and means “valiant,” and from the Italian and Spanish “bravo.” Does that cause you, as it does me, to put your spiritual shoulders back, step out of your comfort zone—and perhaps the status quo—and be brave enough to see, accept, and love yourself just as you are? Then to take that same stance for our world family where justice, compassion, and the dignity of all beings is concerned? That, my friends, calls for a collective “Bravo!” May our valiant journey begin now!

Sunday Topics: 11:00 AM
February 04 A Sense of True Belonging—Is It Bull**** or Reality? – Rev. Pam
According to Brené Brown, PhD and NY Times bestselling author, “…our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.” Why is it that in spite of believing we are made from the very molecules of Spirit we remain unable to be a loyal, unconditionally loving friend to ourselves? Join us this Sunday and discover how to courageously break through the boundaries of the mental bull**** of societal conditioning and our own minds to become free at last.
February 11 Getting Up Close and Personal – Rev. Pam
Whether we’re placing the zoom lens on ourselves or others, when our focus captures our True Essence, we see the fabric of our being and all beings is that of Love. Our individual and collective flaws are overshadowed by the clarity of this seeing. This is the inner eye through which the master teacher Jesus saw all humanity. We too posses this 20/20 vision, and this week we will share how to see the loving nature within ourselves and all beings.
February 18 Truth, Bull****, and Soulful Civility – Rev. Pam
Who among us has not at one time or another relied on BS-ing to worm our way through a sticky situation? To deny this would be even bigger bull****! So whether it’s our own BS or that of others, there are times when truth demands that we take a stand and speak out, just as Jesus did when driving the unscrupulous money changers out of the temple. And even as he did so, love was his motivator and civility informed his righteous indignation. Aren’t we capable of the same?
February 25 Living in the Paradox of Strong Yet Tender – Rev. Pam
“To make ‘true belonging’ a daily practice in our lives,” writes Brené Brown, “we’re going to need a strong back and a soft front in order to experience true belonging.” In other words, it takes both a strong spiritual backbone and an open, tender heart to stand in our integrity, in our inherent knowing of our interconnectedness to all beings. As we enter the last week of our monthly theme, we will learn the benefits of navigating the terrain of our passionately committed wild hearts.
