Today is the first day of lent. It’s also Valentine’s Day. So it is appropriate that the word for today is love.
Here is a meditation about love …
I also wanted to include music so here is Bon Voyage singing “Though I May Speak” at UUCC.
To close I would like to leave you with this prayer.
The world aches for us to join together and bring about healing, toil for justice, and produce ever-increasing love. This is our calling. Go forth and act accordingly. Amen.
UU Rev. Cynthia Kane shares a beautiful message and reflection for her friend on Valentine’s Day. “Maybe, in a better world, that is what Valentine’s Day would be about? Not celebrating romantic love with awful candies, but remembering love in all its forms—remembering to send and share it in ever wider and widening circles. Because, with all due respect to the vocal stylings of Whitney H., I am not one bit sure that learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all. I am still stuck on the idea that learning to love one another is. And learning to hold our hearts open, to really feel and collect all the love and Spirit that travel our way. So whether we are looking at our own face in the mirror—or into the face of our One True Beloved—we see reflected there all the strength and love and care that fill us from so many different quarters.” Read the full letter in The Huffington Post.
