“People keep referring to a time when things ‘return to normal’ but I believe we will not be returning BUT EMERGING." ~Rabbi Joshua Lesser
There is only one life. That life is perfect. That life is God’s life. That life is my life. ‘Nuff said? Yes.
I acknowledge that while principle is absolute, I enjoy affirming the evidence of the absolute. I see God in everything, even the COVID pandemic. I see our CSL-Granada Hills spiritual community has emerged stronger than ever. In fact, we are even THRIVING now that, as Rev. Dr. David Bruner put it: "we used to be a location with on-line attendees and then we became a virtual community that happens to have a building.” Our CSL-GH spiritual community is a glorious co-creative experience of our congregation, Rev. Michael McMorrow (our spiritual director), Practitioners, staff ministers, and admin staff; all expressing the one life of God. We reflect the wholeness of our planet, with the geographic and technology diversity supporting our ONENESS growth. We are ever spiraling upwards, so we meet recurring conditions (new masks mandates) with a higher consciousness than before. There is no going “back to normal” as we are committed to our highest good ever expanding in ways we haven’t imagined.
We rejoice in this awareness that God’s life is our life. We give great thanks that we have created this beautiful, supportive environment in the greater community of the world. Releasing this Word to Law, we relax into allowing it to happen. Love points the way, and the Law makes the way possible.
And so it is!
Rev. Jessica Fish
