"Though I may not be here with you, I urge you to answer the highest calling of your heart and stand up for what you truly believe. In my life I have done all I can to demonstrate that the way of peace, the way of love and nonviolence is the more excellent way. Now it is your turn to let freedom ring.” John Lewis
"Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” RBG
“Do Our Hearts Burn Within Us?”

september 27, 2020
It’s Pastor Pam Tinnin, Guerneville Community Church-UCC, Guerneville, California. With the pandemic restrictions still in place, I present my messages in my own kitchen. We call it Kitchen Church. This week I have been inspired by so many people who are doing their best to maintain under truly tough circumstances. No matter what happens, they reach out with kindness to others, put aside their own fear and anxiety to respond courageously in the worst of circumstances. Even when they’re dealing with grief and loss, they don’t forget that others are hurting, too, and do what they can to comfort them. They are reminders that holiness rests within each person. If we learn to see with our hearts, we can find a glimpse of the Holy One, the living proof that the spark of God resides within each of us. Being flawed human beings, we may not recognize holiness when we see it, but when we open our hearts to that presence we must treat each other, whether family, friends or strangers, with nothing less than unconditional love. In the book of Luke beginning at chapter 24, verse 13, two disciples walking the road to a village called Emmaus are joined by a stranger. Although they do not recognize him at first, their lives are changed forever by the encounter.
Our hearts burned within us
This poem is so powerful in describing that the holy exists in each person. It’s an intro to my message. Blessings all and Namaste, Pam
