At Such A Time As This
Every week, sometimes even every day, something happens in our city, in our nation, or around the world that we, as spiritual beings, are called upon to respond in a way that is spiritually enlightened, humanly compassionate, and courageously engaged.
Heart-breaking events and issues we face include gun violence, excessive use of force by police, terrorism, fanaticism, racism, sexism, genderism, loss of trust in many of our institutions, corruption, pollution, climate change, domestic violence, and more are arising daily. We see this as a call to change the paradigms from which we, as human beings, live and share our planet and resources. We see this as an ever increasing call for us to speak out and live our Global Vision.
We know that our teaching, The Science of Mind™, tells us that we do not refuse to look at conditions, but neither do we dwell upon them. Our current conditions are a result of past thinking. We see the condition and turn our minds to a greater spiritual truth and declare that greater truth to become manifest. We also know that there are times when we must do more than affirmative prayer (spiritual mid treatment) we must move our feet and engage with the world around us. These are such times.
If we do not act, we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark corridors of time reserved for those who possess power without compassion, might without morality, and strength without sight.
~ Martin Luther King Jr.
