There is a spark of pure Life – wholeness – within us all.
Our focused intention for December, is to focus on this idea and learn how to let it be the reference point for what we do in the world, for how we live our lives as elders in the LGBTQ+ community. We will focus on embracing the idea that within each and every one of us is a light. A light ignited by something bigger than us. Something that many would call Spirit.
Ernest Holmes said, "The spark which burns at the center of our own soul is caught from the living and eternal flame of Spirit." (SOM 414.3)
That said: Our charge is to recognize, nurture, and express this Divine spark of wholeness. We kindle this flame by living from our own Divine Center, recognizing it in others, working for it in our community and in the world, and looking to our allies, advocates, and co-conspirators, who have come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a life time. They are indeed our great way-showers to inspire and guide us. Ignite that spark within you. Here are someways we think you might be inspired and empowered to live your life fully and with out apology.
