During the month of JUNE Reverend Glenda and Reverend Judy will help us explore the topic of love: What is love and how do we find it?
Historically, June is the month of celebrating love and weddings, a tradition that goes all the way back to early Roman times in which a festival in honor of the deity Juno, goddess of marriage and childbirth, was held.
For certain, beyond the idea of marriage, learning how to love and how to love well is the goal and the purpose of a spiritual life.
Because love is central to happiness, satisfaction, growth, meaning, and fulfillment; cultivating the capacity to develop 'noble hearted' love and impartial compassion in daily life helps us recognize our fundamental interconnectedness with others.
Lama Surya Das, author of The Big Questions, tells us: "True love has no sides, boundaries, or corners. It is without circumference and beyond inside and out. The heart of limitless love includes everyone and everything, embracing one and all in its warmth."
This series of talks is perfect for everyone because we all want and need love. In fact, if you are ready to soften up and let love touch you deeply, please join us every Sunday in June as we come together to learn ways of transforming ourselves so that we are able to be love, purely and unconditionally.
Please join us at Common Ground for our 10:30 am inspirational service.
