Will You Rise Up? from Kit Holmes, RScP

Are You Willing to Rise Up?

The temperatures outside and the varied vacation schedules of our staff may indicate it's summertime here on The Hill, but you'd never know it by the way our volunteers, guest speakers and musicians have kept everything humming along so beautifully (and raising the consciousness of our community while doing it!).  
This past Sunday, our Board of Trustees President (and chaplain) Jan Gauvain brought us a gathering prayer that many of you have requested we post. Thank you, Jan for your light, your service and for generously sharing your prayer again:

Will you rise up to be the change you wish to see in the world?
Will you rise up to be and come  from your authentic self?
Will you rise up in the name of loving kindness?
Will you rise up for justice?
Will you rise up to engage in our New Thought principles?  
Will you rise up to the glory of being a co-creator with God?
Will you rise up to a world that works for everyone?
Will you rise up and express your self love?
Will you rise up and be a model of peace?
Will you rise up and feed the hungry: body, mind and spirit?
Will you rise up and be a light in the darkness for others?
Will you rise up and protect those who are most vulnerable?
Will you rise up in prayer?
Will you rise up and love your enemies, real or imagined?
Will you rise up opening your heart to the great diversity of all life?
Will you rise up and be a forgiving heart?
Will you rise up and let your inner wisdom, your intuition, be your guide in all things?
Will you rise up to know you are an individualized expression of the one God?
Will you rise up to know that yoursoul's journey is eternal? 
Will you rise up and believe in the oneness of all life?
Will you rise up and say yes to a green growing edge?
Will you rise up and let go of judgments of yourself and others?
Will you rise up believing in the eternal givingness of Spirit?
Will you rise up and express your gratitude for what you already have?
Will you rise up and sing more joy into the world?
Will you rise up and recognize the beauty that surrounds you?
Will you rise up and realize you are enough?
Will you rise up and stand in your truth as you navigate an intentional life?
What will you rise up to today?
 
You can hear this prayer again by going to the Live Stream Services section on our website where all of our Sunday services are archived in their entirety. 
We encourage you to revisit them and share as you're moved to.  And, we invite you to "rise up" this coming Sunday morning as our own Dr. Marjie Barlow lifts us with her message and the
InnerState One band raises the roof in song! 
 
Seeing the God in you, 

Kit Holmes, RScP
