Election Day
Rev. David Wynn

Huh, so I'm not sure what to say in this's Election Day and I'm a little all over the map. It began very early this morning when I couldn't sleep. I pray by meditating (I also call it journeying) and following what Spirit and the Ancestors and Guides are showing me. This morning my journey took me gently from my home in bed out to the street my family lives on. The trees were full of different kinds of birds. I went from there to the city I live in accompanied by thousands of butterflies. We moved farther out hovering over the state of Texas and it was coated in blue bonnets...I did tell Spirit that seemed a little predictable to which Spirit said, "I thought you loved predictable" and smiled. We then journeyed above our country and I caught my breath...from that vantage point, above all "the things", you can fill in the blank with "the things" around was breathtakingly beautiful. I asked this question, "how can we be so beautiful and so broken?" The answer was a trip farther out hovering above the world. I then heard, "you are simultaneously in bed and beyond space and time offering healing to the world...feel it." In that moment I felt more Spirits present than I could were there. 

However the days and weeks ahead unfold...there is always more than meets the eye, remember that my family and friends.

How to Create a Balanced Life: 9 Tips to Feel Calm and...

Nkulunkulu Ongumnini Mandla Onke (God All Mighty), UNkulunkulu othembekile njalo (God who is always Faithful). God who is called by many names. God who created the world and everything in it. God who is full of love and mercy. We thank You for the many gifts You have given to us as people of MCC and the world.

It has been hard for many of us, as we are faced with a pandemic that has taken many people’s lives in the world. We have lost hope, but You, God, have continued to show us Your greatness. In all this we are grateful for the lessons and the messages that this has brought to us. We have learned about You in many more ways than we can imagine—that You are God, who is always there even when we do not see or feel You. We are grateful that You have always been around us, surrounding us with Your love and mercy during the pandemic. 

We ask that You hold each and everyone of us in MCC and your people all over the world with Your strength and power. Lead us as Your people to find You in all the moments that we find ourselves in. Teach us to be gentle and kind to ourselves and others around us during these unknown and uncertain times that we are facing as Your people. I pray for wisdom for our leaders and continue to give them strength as they continue to represent You in the world. 

We ask all this in many names and in Jesus name. Amen
