Christopher Chenowith is always a big success and this past Sunday was no exception. 22 people signed up to go on the "Positive Christianity "Cruise at the end of November. There is still room if anyone else would like to go.
The "Talk Back " Session with Glenn went well. As of now, each week that Glenn speaks and it is not Pot Luck there will be a "Talk Back" session starting at 11:45 and it will be held in the library unless it needs to move to the sanctuary because of numbers. We will, also, be offering this to visiting speakers.
The women' shelter, Safe Haven of Tarrant County, is the main service project of Harmony. Your Board decided it is best to contribute $400 monthly so they can put it in their budget. Also we are deciding on a summer project for them. Each year they kick off summer with a Luau for all the kids at both shelters near the middle of June. Later they have a Back-to School Bash which closes out summer and the children again engage in games and activities, lunch, and win different school supplies (although they will be given all of their school supplies at a later date). Each of these is held on a Thursday or Friday for 4 hours and takes 12-15 volunteers. We'll keep you posted on which is decided upon.
The Communications Committee is working on potential new forms of communication (at least new to some of us more mature folks) and making certain what we have is kept up to date.
It may be time for the development of a youth program so options and opportunities are being researched. If any of you are interested in helping develop and/or lead this program please get with Carter Tiernan.
We are beginning what we call a "Buddy" system to help new members become acquainted more easily. Today there IS a Sign Up sheet in the lobby if you wish to participate.

LOOKING BEYOND THE RHETORIC
Glenn and I just participated in early voting for the primary elections. I have been thinking about my own reactions and the reactions of others in response to the negative rhetoric with which we bombarded daily.
I am just as guilty as anyone for becoming attached to my point of view as the correct response. And the nasty is just beginning. I must continue to be watchful of my own energetic contribution and choose moment by moment not to be blinded by my own emotional response.
As a modern day mystic, I know better than to fall into the hate and judgment trap. As a spiritual community, let us remind each other to contribute love into the energy of politics. Let us look past the illusions presented by both parties and let our spiritual power know that at a soul level the highest and best will outcome.
Let our prayer be, "Father-Mother God, we call forth the power that surrounds the throne of Grace, and Beauty and Might guide our leaders and let love prevail and we know that what appears to be chaos is order not yet perceived. We call forth a most benevolent outcome for our nation and our planet."
In The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly Hall, we read about the change a new emphasis on the Mysteries would bring: "Through education--spiritual, mental, moral and physical--man will learn to release hidden truths from their lifeless coverings The perfect government of the earth must be patterned eventually after the divine government by which the universe is ordered. In that day when perfect order is reestablished, with peace universal and good triumphed, men will no longer seek for happiness, for they shall find it welling up within themselves.
"Dead hopes, dead aspirations, dead virtues shall rise from their graves, and the Spirit of beauty and goodness repeatedly slain by ignorant men shall again be the Master of Work. Then shall sages set upon the seats of the mighty and the gods walk with men."
Rev Pat Moore
