"You Are Loved" seems like a nice sentiment, but what about when it doesn't feel true? If someone tells you God loves you and you think, "well, then why can't I feel it?" this program is for you. And truly all of us go through this at least once a day! Are our feelings on the matter reliable indicators of the truth? And how can we get to that good feeling?
While making the decision to attend seminary, I began to dip into a world I didn't know much about--a world different than my own, a little bit scary and totally unfamiliar. And yet this strange world I started to learn about it--parts of which I loved and parts of which I hated--began to change my life and my thinking. Ultimately, it led me down the path of ministry. I don't often like to share this part of my journey because I know what others think of it--but this morning, I want you to hear about a secret little part of my life that has helped me to be a better person--and may just be able to help you, too.
Remember the famous SNL skit where Stuart Smalley states: "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough?" I can remember laughing hilariously when I first saw it. There's nothing like making fun of something you know intimately and I've pretty much read every book on the topic of self-affirmation. Of course, now it's been proving scientifically that affirming and visualizing, in the way Smalley does, has dramatic effects. But long before SNL, the great teachers from the great traditions had already commanded us to love ourselves. Why? Because it's the way to world peace. Think it's impossible? Then listen to my story about support hose and you might change your mind....
I was ordained 12 years ago this month in a beautiful ceremony at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. I took some impressive vows, too. But the journey leading up to that day showed my real commitment to being a "minister," and, as with most of us, the first person who needed my help was myself. I don't always feel like a "minister" and I don't always live up to my Cathedral vows, yet there is no doubt that my life was changed some twenty years ago in the best way and I want to tell you why.
Love is a wonderful idea. But what do you do with the people you can't love? Or the people you can't forgive? Or the people who don't change? We all encounter our fair share of unlovely and unloveable people, sometimes as close as a family member and sometimes as far away as a person who lived long before our birth. When we start practicing our Love walk, we might think we have to find a way to love everyone. We don't. But there is something we do have to do--for our own sake. I
Each us goes through times of challenge. During the course of a life, we will find ourselves facing hardships we have no idea how to overcome and few us of us have strong role models who taught us how to handle the hard times. But we have the power and the ability to transform discouragement and use it to forge a new and better path. Extending last week's show, today I'll share my favorite teachings on how to handle hardship--practical, simple and powerful ways to use or circumstances to overcome our circumstances.
What would you say is the single most powerful spiritual practice--outside of love? I found out through some trials and some errors that there is one practice we can all do that brings incredible freedom, joy and peace. It's part of every spiritual path and while it's challenging, it's rewards are unmistakable. Also, I've never met a single person who didn't need it. Got any ideas? Listen in to hear my take on the single greatest spiritual practice and see if it suprises you or not!
All of us have days when we wake up "in a bad mood." We go through "funks." We "wake up on the wrong side of bed." We "need a vacation!" Did you know you can improve your mood radically without a holiday or winning the lottery or having anything go the way you want it to in a day? Discover some easy ways to quickly overcome a bad mood. These are tools anyone can use at any time that will ground you back in the spiritual truths of who you are as a beloved child of God. You'll feel better by the end of the show!
Many years ago a woman asked me to pray for her to die. She felt that her life made no difference. What would you do in this situation? Discovering that we are loved brings a deep sense of our relevance in the world. It teaches us that we matter and it teaches us how to do more of what matters. Be uplifted in your daily activities as you listen to What You Do Matters.
"GREATER LOVE HAS NO ONE THAN THIS, THAN TO LAY DOWN ONE'S LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS." John 15:13
Blessed are we when we are called by Jesus Christ, "MY FRIEND"
Join me today as I open the wonderful words of life to the book of John 15 and Jesus tells us about being TRUE FRIENDS!
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

in The Bible
Joh 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
What does Jesus mean by commandment?
What does he mean by, as I have loved you?
When did he give this commandment?
Why did the Lord wait to give this commandment?
Well here we are for another week of information and entertainment. Hope youhad a great holiday.
This week we are talking about the greatest phrase that we can possibly use. I AM. Why? Well I think its time we start using it for ourselves and let it infuse our lives with all the power that it possess.
I know that I had announced that we would be having a guest today, but since I have been under the weather for the past few days, our guest has graciously adjusted her schedule and will be joining us for an extended show next week. So be sure and follow through with that one when we have Katrina Schenfield as our guest. Her story is amazing and quite inspiring.
So sit back, it is a short one today but we always get tons of information flowing through today and just go with the flow.
Most important, lets have some fun.
Love, laughter and light,
