It’s Out with the Old and in with the Bold
Rev. David-Michael Searcy
We will celebrate with a Phoenix Ceremony and symbolically release bad habits, negative thoughts, emotions, and unhealthy relationships into the flames of transformation and then we will call to us those miraculous and amazing events that will transform our lives. Life is a process of letting go and letting. This is the Divine Rhythm!
I came to Mountain Light as an act of defiance towards a fundamentalist Christian rehab group that required my daughter to attend church each Sunday that she was allowed home. I could not bear the churches that were approved for her and, in desperation, remembered Mountain Light. My daughter and I walked in not knowing what to expect and immediately I felt that I had arrived home! The rehab group wasn't happy with my choice but I definitely was.
My experience here is one of love and acceptance no matter where you are at in your life or spiritual journey. I love being surrounded by thoughtful, intelligent people who allow me to better understand other viewpoints on many different subjects and agreement with those viewpoints isn't a requirement. How joyful and freeing that is!
I understand now why I was never quite comfortable in the religion of my childhood. I was a Unitarian Universalist my entire life but I just didn't know what it was or what to call it. I can't imagine not having this loving community of friends to lift my spirits and challenge my world view each week!
