Love Me

´Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I really need it.”

A Swedish Proverb

Peace to You and Yours with Love

Sunday, February 07, 2010

Forgiveness entails the authentic acceptance of our own worthiness as human beings, the understanding that mistakes are opportunities for growth, awareness and the cultivation of compassion, and the realization that the extension of love to ourselves and others is the glue that holds the universe together. Forgiveness… is not a set of behaviors, but an attitude.

Peace: How Sweet it is!
Our February 9th meeting has the theme "Love & Peace"! For the third year, Kathy Henning will lead us in a meditation to connect with our inner peace. Reverend Dennis will talk about bringing that inner peace into the world to create more love & peace in our lives. We will have our business meeting following our two presentations. Happy Valentine's Day!
Peace, Colleen
