The Appointed Time.
Sometimes I think that the people that are left in the Church have given up.
When you make a suggestion or present a new idea they seem apathetic and make excuses not to do it.
To them perhaps it seems a long time of decline and failure.
But "there is still a vision for the appointed time." Habakkuk 2:3 (NRSV)
And that time is now!
The dawning of the New Age - the Age of Aquarius - has begun.
A new way of interpreting scripture which is based on legitimate modern scholarship is developing now.
And with it is coming a new revelation from God.
This revelation revolutionizes our image of God and His relationship with humanity.
It revises our understanding of Jesus.
And it centers us in love.
"I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh." Ezekiel 11:19 (NRSV)
Spirituality will no longer be a matter of mental propositions and principles.
Spirituality will be about the development of the human heart.
Open your heart!
Open your heart to God and to humanity.
Open your heart to those around you.
Not just to your family and your friends.
But to everyone!
We are all sons and daughters of God.
Brothers and sisters in the Family of Humanity.
And God is our loving Father.
