Loving greetings and welcome to October, which we traditionally dedicate to celebrating the gift of friendship in our lives. This year’s theme, “Limitless Friendliness,” embraces not only those we call friend, it also reminds us that Spirit’s essence permeates each and every person in which it has uniquely individualized itself. I invite you to join us as we practice extending loving kindness and compassion to all beings, including ourselves. I also wish to add an extra sentence here to express my heartfelt gratitude for the divine friendship we share as a spiritual family.
The October 9, 2022 topic is Growing Holy Relationships, Part 2. Spirit’s expression of unconditional love, compassion, and grace are made tangible through our bonds of friendship. These precious human connections give us the opportunity to grow in our spiritual practices of deep listening, forgiving, making amends–both with others and ourselves. Let us bend a knee in gratitude for all those who have in the past and who continue to offer us their friendship.
