FOR SAFETY OF THOSE TRAVELING HOME                                                       Priest Stephen Gould

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every great movement of God can be traced to a fervent prayer. I like how Paul Bunyan sees prayer " In prayer it is better to have a heart without words, than words without heart." We are at a tipping point in this country and around the world. It's a call to unite. How do we do this?

 

"First, the people must be taught the knowledge of self. Then and only then will they be able to under-stand others and that which surrounds them. Anyone who does not have a knowledge of self is considered a victim of either amnesia or unconsciousness and is not very competent. The lack of knowledge of self is a prevailing condition among my people here in America. Gaining the knowledge of self makes us unite into a great unity. Knowledge of self makes you take on the great virtue of learning."

 

It's about looking at ourselves and holding ourselves responsible, and taking action for the better good of ourselves and our fellowman.

 

Ephesians 4:13 "Till we, in the unity of the faith, all come to the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;"

 

Mosiah 9:54 "And he commanded them that there should be no contention one with another, but that they should look forward with one eye, having one faith and one baptism; having their hearts knit together in unity and in love, one towards another."

 

DC 135:2b" The hastening time is here and greater unity than ever before is necessary if the forces of opposition are to be met;"
