What limits can I lay upon God’s Son?
In the song American Pie, Don McLean, the songwriter and singer says, “The three men I admire most: The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost. They caught the last train for the coast, the day the music died.” Has the music died for you? Would you like to hear the celestial music again? Today’s lesson asks us, “What limits can I lay upon God’s Son?” The answer is “none.” God’s Son is an extension of God’s Divine Nature.
In Alcoholic Anonymous, it is suggested in step nine that we make direct amends to the people we have harmed wherever possible and where it would do no further harm. This requires forgiveness first of ourselves and then of others. This kind of forgiveness facilitates “healing.”
In Unitarian Universalism, we join together to affirm and promote justice, equity, and compassion in human relations and in doing so we recognize and acknowledge that there is no limit to the goodness of God’s Son.
Today, it is suggested that we look for and acknowledge at least to ourselves the Divine Spark in every person and that we cannot limit the Divine Nature of God’s Son.
