Minister's Moment

You were born into a chaotic world that needs YOU to express your best self. Barbara Marx Hubbard describes this critical point in history as the 11 th Hour. You are called to join with others to be a tipping point that transforms crises into evolutionary drivers. Identify your unique 4 P’s of Purpose to create a positive ripple effect. Together, let’s shift from outrageous pain and possible extinction, to a conscious evolution with outrageous love. According to System Theorists, small positive  fluctuations  in a sea of social chaos can jump the system to a higher order. You are blessed with a signature gift to address specific needs within your family, friends, and circle of influence. Rather than feeling overwhelmed and paralyzed
by all of today’s problems, this is the time to do what is uniquely yours to do.

The Association of Global New Thought (AGNT) invites you to participate in a mission of spiritually motivated activism called Engaged Spirituality . In February 2019, the AGNT began a two-year series, with 9 modules, to apply New Thought Principles as we engage in today’s issues. Let’s be a compassionate, wise and respectful voice in the midst of polarizing and contentious conversations. New Thought churches are taking a leadership role through S ocial U plift M inistries (SUM) . This approach empowers social change for a just and sustainable world that works for all. It is based upon the principle that the “Whole is greater than the S.U.M. of its parts.” By participating in a Symphony of Unique Selves with others, we practice our USCNI Mission of “living love and uplifting lives.”
 
Continuing to do pioneering sacred work in a world as crazy and painful as ours, without constantly grounding yourself in a sacred practice, would be like running into a forest fire-- dressed only in a paper tutu.
