What is creation? (Reading)
Creation is the sum of all God’s Thoughts, in number infinite, and everywhere without all limit. Only love creates, and only like itself. There was no time when all that created was not there. Nor will there be a time when anything that it created suffers any loss. Forever and forever are God’s Thoughts exactly as they were and as they are, unchanged through time and after time is done.
God’s Thoughts are given all the power that their own Creator has. For He would add to love by extension. Thus His Son shares creation, and must therefore share in power to create. What God has willed to be forever One will still be One when time is over; and will not be changed throughout the course of time, remaining as it was before the thought of time began.
Our Father calls to us. We hear His Voice, and we forgive creation in the Name of its Creator, Holiness Itself, Whose Holiness His Own creation shares; Whose Holiness is still a part of us.
Father, my freedom is in You alone. (Lesson)
I did not understand what made me free, nor what my freedom of, nor where to look to find it. Father, I have searched in vain until I heard Your Voice directing me. Now I would guide myself no more. For I have neither made nor understood the way to find my freedom. But I trust in You. You Who endowed me with my freedom as Your holy Son will not be lost to me. Your Voice directs me, and the way to You is opening and clear to me at last. Father, my freedom is in You alone. Father, it is my will that I return.
Today we answer for the world, which will be freed along with us. How glad are we to find our freedom through the certain way our father has established. And how sure is all the world’s salvation, when we learn our freedom can be found in God alone.
Oh blissful day! Four hours at the gym and spa, a walk around Cannon Hill Park, one final look at the Rivers of Birminam exhibition and an opportunity to listen to the filmed narrative, late, late lunch, with a pot of green tea and a good book. This is freedom! Even managed a few hundred words on the church book, and ended the night with some comedy – Live at the Apollo. Did I mention BLISS!
