Jesus said of his teachings: “I have said these things to you that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.” (John 15:11) Whatever the circumstances of my life, I can choose joy, the joy that comes from knowing that we have been brought a new understanding of life, a new way of loving one another. Joy does not come from judging outer circumstances. Joy does not come from anywhere outside ourselves. Joy always comes from within our own heart and mind.
We release what no longer serves us from the past and embrace the promise of the New Year.
Rev. Tony Cryer will discuss ” I Release What No Longer Serves My Highest Good.” This is the time of year when many of us make a decision to let go of what no longer serves us and embrace a new direction, or a new approach to life, in hopes of creating a better future. Being in the present moment is the prescription of most spiritual teachers as the way to accomplish this. Join us this Sunday as we let go of the past and let Spirit show us what is available in the here and now.
