Tending the Flame
Monday, December 9, 2013
I have to say, I'm quite glad I have found the Church of the Large Fellowship online (an online UU congregation). I first found them back in March and attended some services before I decided to officially contribute and join. It has been spiritually uplifting and comforting lately and reminds me to take time to find time for the divine, in whatever form that may take.
I have made more of a conscious effort lately to find time for the divine and it has been quite comforting, especially with the past few months being emotionally draining. I think tending the flame of the altar and taking just a few moments to ground and center myself has really made a difference in how I approach things, even if I find it hard to cope with at the time.
I challenge you to take just five minutes to ground and center in a place that you find sacred. Light a candle, maybe some incense and see where it takes you. It's very empowering and comforting.
Also, I know Yule is coming but I'm not very good with the altar decorating. I don't have many statues or things to adorn with. It mostly stays sort of 'blah' year round even if I do honor seasonal celebrations.
