Domingo, 25 de enero
En este día en 1858 la “Marcha Nupcial” de Mendelssohn se interpretó por primera vez (en la boda de Victoria, hija de la reina Victoria, con el príncipe de la corona de Prusia).

“Como mi profesora de secundaria, la señorita Julia Coleman, solía decir: ‘Tenemos que ajustarnos a las realidades actuales y aún así mantener los principios inmutables.” ~ Jimmy Carter (presidente de Estados Unidos)

LAS VIRTUDES HUMANAS SON SIEMPRE NECESARIAS
Rev Dr Durrell Watkins

El mundo cambia. Los mensajes de texto, Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, la blogosfera, correo electrónico, teléfonos celulares que son realmente computadoras de bolsillo y dispositivos de grabación y cámaras, tabletas electrónicas que sustituyen los libros de papel, tratamientos para enfermedades que ni siquiera tenían nombres hace unas décadas, viajes al espacio, moda, programas de grado en línea … el mundo en el que mis padres crecieron es cosa del pasado y se ha sustituido un par de veces ya. Nos comunicamos de manera diferente, vestimos de manera diferente, viajamos de manera diferente, incluso trabajamos de manera diferente. Y la mayoría de estos cambios son buenos (o al menos no están mal). Pero la esperanza, el amor, la igualdad, la equidad, la justicia, la compasión, el respeto, la fidelidad, la buena voluntad … estas cualidades siguen siendo valiosas. No podemos reclamar “los viejos tiempos”, pero el mejor de todos los tiempos es el mejor incluso todavía.

oración positiva:
Miro a los “mejores ángeles de [mi] naturaleza” para ayudarme a ser y hacer lo mejor en este siempre cambiante, mundo maravilloso. Amén.

Sunday, January 25th
On this day in 1858 Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March” was first played (it was for the wedding of Queen Victoria’s daughter Victoria and the crown prince of Prussia).

“As my high school teacher, Miss Julia Coleman, used to say, ‘We must adjust to current realities and still hold to unchanging principles.’” ~ Jimmy Carter (US President)

HUMAN VIRTUES ARE ALWAYS NEEDED
REV DR DURRELL WATKINS

The world changes. Texting, Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, the blogosphere, email, cell phones that are really pocket computers and recording devices and cameras, electronic tablets replacing paper books, treatments for diseases we didn’t even have names for a few decades ago, space travel, fashion, online degree programs…the world my parents grew up is long gone and has been replaced a few times already. We communicate differently, dress differently, travel differently, even work differently. And most of these changes are good (or at least not bad). But hope, love, equality, fairness, justice, compassion, respect, fidelity, goodwill…these qualities remain valuable. We can’t reclaim “the good old days,” but the best of every age is the best even still.

positive prayer:
I look to the “better angels of [my] nature” to help me be and do my best in this ever changing, wonderful world. Amen.

Spirituality is both a personal and a shared experience; it is private and communal. The old religious dogmas, hierarchies, creeds, and antiquated vocabularies are increasingly irrelevant to 21st century seekers of truth; but the shared spiritual journey still has value.

Can we move beyond the irrelevance of outmoded religion and still form spiritual communities, embrace life enhancing rituals, enjoy sacred stories, and ask honest questions that may not have preapproved answers? One liberal minister thinks that such spiritual communities are possible and needed and he has devoted his life to creating such communities.
A humanistic spirituality can still embrace mystery and wonder, hope and peace, possibilities and wisdom, and as we offer such spirituality, a new generation may discover that houses of worship can still have meaning.
