Historical Modes of Thought and the Future – Our Fourth Principle
Message by Charles Gray
Moment of Perspective – Our Fourth Principle and Our Children – Farrow Carson
The opening words are The Great Teachers in Life by Jason Cook.
We seekers are on a quest:
A quest to discover truth and meaning.
Sometimes we think we’ve found it—
Wrapped up, glimmering with newness
Straight off the intellectual assembly line.
All the answers right here for us
And others, if they’d only listen.
But truth has a way of coming in disguise,
Sometimes wearing rags and sometimes finery,
But so often cloaked from our immediate sight.
And sometimes, that which we have rejected,
That which we have let go of
Or decided was only for others
But not us—
Can be our teacher.
Let our time of worship be an acknowledgment
Of the never ending journey toward truth and meaning,
And our appreciation of those we learn from along the way.
The closing words are by Bets Wienecke.
May we leave this place
Seeking an uncharted and freely chosen way to wholeness,
Knowing we have companions along the way.
