How to Make Peace With Your Life

By Panache Desai

Reprinted from The Huffington Post, 11/17/2016

Are you at war with life? You may not feel like you’re at war with your life but take a closer look.

How often do you find yourself angry at the silliest little details?

Or feeling conflicted because there’s a part of you that just wants to be happy, but still you feel discontent?

Or simply in a state of resistance which puts up energetic walls that make presence and peace nearly impossible?

If any of this describes your daily life to some extent, consider that you have the opportunity to make peace with your life, to move into the energy of acceptance, and to realize the truth of your essential nature. There is a monumental energy of support behind you that wants you to thrive.

You are capable of experiencing pure joy, fulfillment, and love in each moment. Make peace with yourself, and you’ll see the energetic reverberations flow outward into your daily life as you move toward dynamic enlightenment.

Faithful to God Means Faithful to the Future

Talk by Rev. Michael Dowd

Guest sermon at Westminster Congregational UCC Church, Spokane, WA, October 2016

Rev. Michael Dowd proposes that we are in the early stages of the evidential reformation, learning that God speaks through Nature. He explains that all forms of evidence are authoritative, not just ancient texts.

God is still speaking – and facts are God’s native tongue!
