Seeing the Light

All-Ages Service, Reflection delivered on March 19, 2017

at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Athens, GA

Centering Thoughts:

The depths of our own beings are not all sunlit; to see clearly, we must be willing to dive into the dark, inner abyss and acknowledge the creatures we may find there.  Starhawk

My thanks to everyone all over the world who has helped me believe in the butterfly.  This is a tale of a caterpillar who has trouble becoming what he really is.  It’s like myself–like us.  Trina Paulus

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.  Seneca

Questions for Reflection & Discussion:

  1.  Consider and share a time in your life when you were resistant to change.  What fears held you back?  How did you shed that resistance?  Was there a special guide?
  2. How have you been required to break through the darkness of a chrysalis to emerge into light and “fly”?  With the new light of spring, what “butterfly” characteristics do you hope to emerge?
