From Rev. Arlene

Sometimes everything that’s happening in the world can seem overwhelming. If we spend too much time watching the news on TV or On-line we can get a misconstrued notion of what is really going on around us. However, there is always as many, if not more, wonderful events occurring as there are terrible incidents.

We should remember to see everything from a higher perspective. Rather than getting drawn into the negativity of some, we can be a light to help change our world for the better. You might be thinking, ”But I am only one person, what can I do?”

Never underestimate the power of positive thought in the world. Things can change and do change. Not just by people such as Gandhi or Martin Luther King Jr, but by individuals such as you and I. Everyday there are stories, if one chooses to look for them, of people who are making a positive difference in this world. They may not be changing an entire nation but they are changing someone’s life and by doing so, they are creating a positive energy, which when multiplied by many, can do amazing things.

Never doubt the power you have in your hands – you can make a difference, you do make a difference!
