ARE YOU INVOLVED WITH LIFE OR ARE YOU COMMITTED TO LIFE?
When I was thinking about this talk , I spent a lot of time walking around thinking about just what does Are You Involved in Your Life or Are You Committed mean? What is it like to live life fully committed, not just involved? What does it mean to only be involved vs being totally committed? How deep are you willing to go to find out?
The question this morning, two days before Valentine’s Day, is . . ARE YOU READY TO BE THE WORLD’S GREATEST LOVER!? Whoa! What kind of question is that for church!?
Not the kind of lover you may be thinking! But rather a lover of humankind! A person who can make a difference in this world through love! A person who can find genuine happiness and contentment through love! That’s the kind of “lover” we’re talking about today.
It’s time to re-focus our attention and energies on the reason why we’re here – we’re here to be love in expression. Why? Because being loving is a wonderful, wonderful thing. An exhilarating feeling!

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”doesn’t make any sense. mevlana jelaluddin rumi – 13th century
Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity, developed the system called the 12 Powers. He believed that recognizing these innate faculties and nurturing their growth within a person was the pathway to revealing the Divinity within each one of us. Today, the 12 Powers is a foundational teaching of Unity.
