PALESTINE REFLECTION: Community, mystery, story – a delegate's perspective

PALESTINE REFLECTION: Community, mystery, story – a delegate's perspectiveIt seems appropriate that the May 2013 CPT delegation to Palestine began in the days between Pentecost and Trinity Sunday. At Pentecost, God comes to unify, to build community among diverse nations. Trinity Sunday reminds us that God is, in essence, a community, and that we are invited to experience God as the mysterious dance of three-in-one. Our delegation of thirteen, from the U.S., Canada, Scotland and Romania, has dwelt in these mysteries, feeling God's uniting presence in the midst of our differences.

Some women view the word as reminder of an archaic time when it was believed that a woman's place was in the home bare-foot and pregnant.

The power of purpose

We all have a purpose in life. We were all created to do something that is greater than the accumulation of wealth. Real success in life can only be measured by the accomplishment of your intended purpose. You are successful when you do what you were created to do. Until we truly understand why we are here, we can never put the energy needed to bring it to pass. We are greatest when we know our divine purpose.
