Sunday, February 18th - 10:00 a.m. Celebration Service - Rev. Doug Foglesong - "Desire, Opinion and Revelation” with Abigayle Rose as our musical guest!
Our desires and opinions taint our understanding of what is “revealed” to us. We interpret what we perceive to be revelation to reinforce what we want. We claim Divine Endorsement of what we have created at the human level in order to make it more believable to ourselves and therefore more saleable to others. We need to stay alert to the so-called revelations that arise from human opinions, desires and rationalizations. In order to access strong new beliefs that have the power to shatter old, faulty ones, we must enter the stillness, consciously releasing habitual thought that filters our perceptions. It is in the uncluttered simplicity of stillness that we receive as “revelation” what Dr. Holmes calls Reality – insights into what is possible – glimpses of the richest, fullest, most joyous experience of our life and how we can attain it.
