Love is the Answer

Love is the theme for February. In “River of Life-How to Live in the Flow” by Rev. Mariln Awtry, she quotes Emanuel Swedenborg who says of love: “The most essential part of a person’s nature is his ruling love. It is this that shapes the whole character and constitutes, in fact, the individuality...everyone has his own love, or a love distinct from the love of another, and every one’s own love remains with him after death.”

Valentine’s Day is such a joyful time to celebrate love. It gives us the opportunity to reflect on all types of love: for our family members and relations, our friends, partners, pets, community, co-workers, for our earth, the world, the universe; for Spirit and for our relationships with ourselves. The lyrics of the 1965 song: “What the world needs now, is love sweet love. It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of..:” ring true today. If we believe in Infinite Intelligence, we know that there Is infinite love.

There is always more love to give, to share. Love is an infinite source. As Spiritualists we know that the Law of Love is the creative principle and the highest of vibrations. So as another song from the 1960’s says: “Put a little love in your heart.” We give our love and gratitude to our dear friend, The Rev. Rosemary Calderalo, NST, who served our church from January 31 to February 2 with her inspirational teaching and loving service to Spirit and Spiritualism. Thank you, dear Rosemary!

On Sunday, February 9, our congregants will take to the podium to share their thoughts on Love. I will speak on February 16 and Dr. Maria Marotti returns to the platform to share her joyful and humorous spirit on February 23.
Perhaps as Spiritualists, we can reflect on the words of Dani Antman, internationally known energy healer and interfaith Santa Barbara minister who says in her book: “Wired For God:” “I learned that love is the ultimate container to hold opposites; only a heart tenderized by love can allow life and death to exist in such close proximity.”

We look forward to welcoming Dani Antman as our Sunday church speaker on March 1, 2020. And returning in March for his third annual visit to Santa Barbara from the UK is our esteemed dear friend and mentor, International Medium and Tutor, Robin Hodson, offering us new and exciting opportunities for growth and learning.

With my love, Pastor Pam
