Scripture: "All streams run to the sea, but the sea is not full; to the place where the streams flow, there they flow again."
Message: The Flow of Creation
Silence and sounds resonate throughout the universe. Sounds of life, at times almost imperceptible, that can bring us back into the fold of creation. The trickle of water flowing over rocks in a brook, the crashing of endless majestic waves, the beat of wings as birds dance across the water's edge. The primordial forests alive with tiny insects, creatures and animals all playing their part in the rhythm of life. The natural death and rebirth, changing every moment.
All there waiting to bring renewal if we only listen and perceive. In the remote beauty, the door to the Divine creative force of love and grace opens wide as our faith deepens.
Music: "Lay My Burden Down" Rita Coolidge
"Silence is the discipline by which the inner fire of God is tended and kept."
"Within us is the soul of the whole, the wise silence, the universal beauty, the eternal One."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
