Rev. Cheryl

Dear Friends and Family,

Rev. Wanda dedicated her talk this past Sunday to Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who made her transition on Friday, September 18, 2020. Ruth Bader Ginsburg spent a lifetime of service to this country in the face of adversity. After being appointed to the Supreme Court, she successfully fought against gender discrimination and for equal rights for all.

Rev. Wanda asked, “Do You have faith, or are you had by faith?” I have a feeling that each of you has pondered this question at one time or another.

She reminded us of our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes’s argument that faith and fear are two sides of the same coin. If you are “had by faith,” you are coming from fear. If you have the faith “of God,” you are coming from that place in you that knows that all is possible with faith. That in order to have faith, we must have a conviction that all is well. In order to keep the faith, we must allow nothing to enter our thought, which will weaken this conviction. Faith is built from belief, acceptance, and trust.

In the words of Rev. Wanda, “Get Definite with the Infinite.” Which always says YES! She also reminded us that we have to continue to practice to build our faith muscle. Thank you Rev. Wanda and Ruth for such important lessons.

Rev. Cheryl
