Ho’omoe wai kahi ke kao’o
Have you missed traveling during this pandemic? Been wishing you could operate on island time? Well, break out your Hawaiian T-shirts, flip flops and leis because it is Ohana Sunday!
This is a fun, sacred and wonderful tradition we formed after Rev. James spent significant time serving at Unity of Hawaii. And yes, do dress Hawaiian if you like, or at least colorful, to add to the enthusiastic and aloha atmosphere. Yes, even if watching from home!
As you probably know, Ohana means "family", and for the first time in over a year, we will be having an in-person & online Ohana service which will include welcoming new members into the Unity of Dallas spiritual family. That is worth celebrating, right? Though restrictions are beginning to loosen some at UOD and more information is on the way soon, we maintain a Covid-conscious environment with safety as a priority.
To embrace our island theme even more, Rev. James will be speaking about the Hawaiian proverb "Ho’omoe wai kahi ke kao’o." He will translate this proverb into the Unity Truth we know. It also has resonating connection to many paths of spirituality, including the study of the New Testament.
To translate it for you right now would ruin the surprise wouldn’t it? But let’s just say the proverb will speak to the impact of the waters in your life and those who are around you. Are they choppy waters or in the flow, turbulent or calm? This proverb, and its wisdom, will assist us in our confidence navigating the spontaneous waters of life.
Our Sunday message and music will help us connect for the annual meeting following the service. Once again, we can be with our Ohana live or online.
This will be a warm-hearted Sunday you won't want to miss! We can't wait to see you there! Mahalo!
