Dear Sanctuary NYC Peeps,
I hope you are having a wonderful early fall. The seasons change and the world goes on, even if the U.S. government closes down. This is a helpful truth to remember.
Have you noticed that we have become a pundit/Google nation? In the past several weeks, I shared information with very intelligent folks. Two of them responded with what someone else on Google said about the topic. I asked a third person to tell me his opinion, and he also responded with a link from an internet search.
But what I want to know is, what do YOU think??
It is critical, especially during the dramatic paradigm shift we have been experiencing since October 2012, for people to be awake. We need to reclaim our critical thinking skills, and our powers of observation and discernment, and take some time to decide, ok, so what DO I think about these issues.
Fundamentalist groups persuade people to follow crazy ideas by convincing them that they don't know how to think. The opposite tack is frankly one of the qualities I like best about Jesus. He never answers a question directly when he is called upon to heal or transform. He always asks the person in need of healing if he or she is ready to be healed.
I would like to challenge you in this very interesting moment to think about how the government would run if YOU were in a position to influence events. What priorities would you emphasize? How would you like to see the healthcare system work? And as you think about this, have a conversation with somebody about it. Then VOTE for the candidate you think will best represent the world you see as the right one.
I would love to hear what YOU think, not what Google thinks, or what some charismatic leader told you, or ... You get my point.
Sunday will be a GREAT day. Can't wait to see everyone. I have had a really wonderful trip to CA, and have much to share with you. We also have some planning to do for our TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY.
So come on out and tell us what YOU THINK:)
We love to hear your face - for real,
