Spring Forward on Saturday Night!

The Rebels Amongst Us

Many months ago, we had a series and theatrical skit at Unity of Dallas called: The Women of The Bible. We learned about the lasting impact they had on humanity and thus, metaphysically on us. Now I realize a common characteristic that many of these women shared was, well…they were rebels!

A definition of rebel depends on one’s perception. I have a new definition. One of my daughter’s first gifts upon entering this World was a book called Rebel Girls. Hmm, I had to take pause. Was this the vision we have for her? I could just envision rebellious notions entering her mind through osmosis from this piece of literature and her coming to me in 13 years declaring, “I’m a rebel girl!” A conundrum indeed.  

The first words I read when opening the book was a sort of an invitation followed by a proclamation:

"To the rebel girls of the world:

Dream bigger
Aim higher
Fight harder
And, when in doubt, remember
You are right."

About 3/4ths of that made 100% sense to me and the book has sat on her nightstand ever since. Thanks to the close proximity of this literature, I have found myself reading her stories and being inspired by these two hundred remarkable women. Some familiar names and some not so familiar who were astronauts, doctors, writers, rock stars, queens, a tattoo artist and even a spy! 

One common thread I understand about these rebel girls is the ability to emerge out of difficult hallways of transition. The past two Sundays we have called it "The Comeback!" These rebels find ways through their unique, creative thinking and determination to overcome adversity. 

If that is what a rebel is, then maybe all of us have some rebel inside of us!

This week featured International Women’s Day. Sunday I will acknowledge this celebration with powerful stories of rebels. Many of whom have  embraced the Divine Feminine throughout history. I have even been given permission to share stories from a couple of our very own Unity Of Dallas rebel girls at heart. Not only are we honoring women, but the powerful principles of love and strength they embrace. 

Maybe by then I will learn that in fact the proclamation made above is 100% true…all of the time!

Let’s Thrive,
Rev. James
