I’ve always attended church and been part of a religious fellowship as far back as I can remember. Placed there in those formative years by the Matriarchs of the small villages I’d lived in Jamaica. So, wherever my butterfly spirit takes me over the years, near or far, one of the first things I’d search for was a church. One reflects the values and teachings I have grown to admire and love.
Not just one that was regurgitating the scriptures or spewing out contradictory interpretations of the Holy Bible, but rather, one that embodies and exemplifies the word of God. That God of Love, that God of mercy, an all empowering God that I’ve grown to know and love! We should know God for ourselves, and in this season of gift-giving and celebratory events, it’s a good time to get back to basics. This awakening begins in the fragility of our humanity, knowing that we are an extension of each other. God loves us all, and we need each other to survive. Proverbs 2: 10-11 “When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant to thy soul; (11) Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee.”
Have a safe and blessed day!
