Rev. Ed's Reflections
It has been truly said that change is the only constant in our life experience. This is true, I think, no matter how spiritually aware we believe ourselves to be. The amount of change in our lives certainly doesn’t decrease as we progress in awareness — indeed, it often seems to increase. It is in how we react to the change that we measure our growth.
Sometimes change seems to be out of control, and we are tempted to resist for all we are worth. At other times change seems to be happening very, very slowly — if at all. And we may want to speed things up through impulsive choices.
In fact, our mental perceptions are not to be trusted when it comes to change. In truth and in spirit, change is constant, unavoidable and always unfolding exactly on schedule.
The perfect energy from which to approach all change is patience. Patience allows us to wait for change that seems slow in coming. Patience also centers us and stills us when the pace of change seems to be out of hand. How do we access patience? It helps to remember what the New Thought author Emmet Fox described as The Golden Key: Take your focus off of whatever the problem may be, and focus instead on God.
So we release every thought of anxiety or fear about change, and focus on the one unchanging constant, the Power and Presence of God that we are. The result will be patience that allows change to unfold in divine order.
Today I focus on expressing the unchanging love of God, and rest patiently as the changes of this life experience peacefully unfold. Thank you, God!

The Mystic Chorale, one of Greater Boston’s favorite community choruses, presents its annual Gospel concert. Led by award-winning gospel director Jonathan Singleton, the 250-voices-strong chorale and 5-piece band will present two joyful and spirit-filled performances featuring eclectic music rooted in the African American gospel tradition.
The stirring program of contemporary and traditional music includes the moving “God Bless the Child;” the Soweto Gospel Choir’s “Avulekile Amasango” combined with Bob Marley’s “One Love”; the foot-stomping “Old Landmark” from Aretha Franklin’s Amazing Grace album, and songs by other great gospel artists such as Richard Smallwood, Kirk Franklin and the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir!
Sharing songs of love and hope with the Mystic Chorale is guaranteed to lift your spirits!
