Re-Gathering & Re-Imagining

“...the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” – Carl Jung

We stand at the cusp of a new chapter. Will the chapter be the status quo or will we each bring more light to our existence? Perhaps your most recent chapters have seemingly lacked kindling and appeared more as a sputtering spark. Reimagining can be the kindling you seek! I am grateful for the Unity of Dallas community which has begun to regather in many ways. While regathering, we can appreciate our past while reimagining how we will collectively light our future! 

I find it fabulous that our “mere being” as Carl Jung put it, finds itself elevated and more joy-filled through ideas taught and demonstrated by our Wayshower such as love, understanding and utilization of faith. At Unity, dedication to our principles and teachings assist us in reaching inward while raising self-awareness. If we are dedicated to this spiritual practice, we will no doubt add fuel to our own Christ-light resulting in a reimagined bright path. From there we can’t but help to light the way for others! I recognize It’s been a tough year. and the light has seemed dim for many. but isn’t now the time?

Regathering and reimagining give us a new opportunity to take stock. At Unity of Dallas, we are currently enjoying multiple conversations around the potential which exists. I have come to realize that reimagining and regathering may require something more challenging: relearning or 
rethinking. We may need to explore outside the box techniques if we are truly going to light the way. Oh, what a fun and great path to explore!

In the series beginning on Sunday, I will give inspirational examples from spiritual masters, philosophers and thought leaders, who had the gift of reimagining, even shunning, common wisdom of the day. They sometimes went against the grain, zigged when others zagged, to create fresh and brighter ways forward. Ask yourself, are there areas in my life that I assumed, or thought was the way to be, versus reimagining a higher light filled path?  Again, not always easy!

If by Kindle a light” Jung meant, “Kindle our Spirit to illuminate God”, then he may have been on to something! Are you willing? What will you reimagine about your life and your future?

Let’s Thrive,
Rev. James

July 4th Picnic: A Re-Gathering Of Unity of Dallas!

One form of dignity is the ability to enter an eating establishment, pay for food, and sit down to eat it. We take this for granted, but those living on the street often cannot.

For the summer months we will assist Dallas unhoused folks by providing $5 McDonald's gift cards to SoupMobile. 

Please drop them off at the welcome table during Sunday services or Saturday between 2-4. PLEASE do NOT make substitutions to this well thought out and vetted program. If you are not comfortable with $5 McDonald's gift cards, cash contributions are also welcome!

Contact lesacwalker@yahoo.com with questions or concerns.

Would you rather donate online for SoupMobile than drop-off?
