“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Gandhi.
Unity at the Lake will celebrate the 21st annual World Day of Prayer on Sept. 11, 2014 from 9AM to 4PM.
The theme this year is We Are the Light of the World: Let Your Light Shine.
“…Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
“…Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ‘A Return To Love’ (1992) by Marianne Williamson
The Rev. Hillary Bittman said in a press release, “World Day of Prayer gives us an opportunity to come together in celebration of our oneness with God, each other, and our world. Through prayer we foster peace and wholeness in our community and in our individual lives.”
The seven-hour prayer vigil will be from 9am-4pm at 1195 Rufus Allen Blvd., South Lake Tahoe. Come any time and stay as long or as short as you like.
