Deep heartfelt gratitude for the unconditional love of our Transcendent Source.

Listen to the story of the prodigal son, and learn what God’s treasure is and yours: This son of a loving father left his home and thought he had squandered everything for nothing of any value, although he had not understood its worthlessness at the time. He was ashamed to return to his father, because he thought he had hurt him. Yet when he came home the father welcomed him with joy, because the son himself was his father’s treasure. He wanted nothing else.T-8.VI.4:1-4

We all wander off into the world of the ego thinking that the ego’s promises will make us happy. We are afraid of our Creator’s wrath as we have been taught to fear by the ego, and yet we have been mistaken and come to realize that our Creator loves us unconditionally.

In Unitarian Universalism some of us join together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which is something our mistakes could never destroy.

Today it is suggested that we allow ourselves to become aware of the unconditional love of our Transcendent Source and express deep heartfelt gratitude for its existence in our lives when we recognize, acknowledge, and accept it.
