I will accept my part in God’s plan for salvation.
Well, you can if you want to but you don’t have to. Should I accept my part in God’s plan for salvation or go my separate way? Up to you. See how things work out for you.
In Alcoholic Anonymous, after we realize that our life is unmanageable and we don’t know what else to do, it dawns on us that maybe there is a better way and that better way is turning our lives over to God and accept our part in God’s plan for salvation.
What is that way? It is based on forgiveness. Forgiveness of ourselves and others for our mistakes in thinking the things in the world of the ego could ever make us happy.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote a free and responsible search for truth and meaning which leads ultimately to accepting our part in God’s plan for salvation realizing the inherent worth and dignity of every person and the interdependent web of all existence of which we, of course, are a part.
“Eeesy Peesy” as little children say. Why fight it? Why wilfully insist that we can do it ourself. Don’t need no Higher Power thing. I am just fine myself. Thank you very much.
So, today, lesson #98 suggests that we accept our part in God’s plan for salvation and that we take 5 minutes at the beginning of every hour to curiously ask that God has in mind for us.
Let God whisper in the silence. You can only hear God’s voice if you are quiet.
