Today's Encouraging Word and Inspirational Message is brought to you by Penny Hurley on behalf of the Compassionate Care Network.
Scripture: "You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you."
Isaiah 26: 3
Message: The Sacred Geometry of Trust
Rev. Tom's message sparked a renewed interest in me to continue on the journey toward understanding of self, with a "fearless moral inventory" and its relationship to trust. How trust requires that we take responsibility for our actions and their consequences.
Something I read about trust struck me: "Trust is both vertical with God and horizontal with people.." and led me to thinking about geometry, and all the shapes, lines and configurations in which we hold relationships. And continued on to read about "sacred geometry" - of the balance and harmony possible in the world. Geometry creates patterns and unity. Sunflowers, shells, leaves, all of creation reflect a sacred pattern.
I find that to be a hopeful thought, and pray we can work together in an ever-widening circle of trust.
