In December each year, the topic of New Year Resolutions pops up in my community. Do you create resolutions and goals for each new year? Did you realize all of your intentions for last year? I hope so.
The custom of setting New Year’s resolutions began with the Babylonians some 4000 years ago and it was celebrated in March. Later, the Romans adopted the tradition and moved the celebration to January, honoring the god Janus. They made resolutions with a moral flavor: mostly to be good to others.
I think that resolutions that include being good to others is a great intention for me. How about for you?
“It was my pleasure to have May McCarthy speak at Unity In Marin. I am so glad I listened to my Chief Spiritual Officer that inspired me to invite her to come speak. She was very well received and her message was excellent. Her authentic manner and her application of spiritual principles in her life was truly an inspiration to us all. I have heard many speakers over the years and I must say she is one of the best! If you have not yet had her speak at your organization I would suggest you do not delay and contact her today! I am already scheduling her return visit! ” Rev. Bill Englehart Senior Minister | Unity of Martin

Be Grateful for the Gift of Freedom
As I was sitting in an airport on Veteran’s Day, I couldn’t help but think about the topic of Freedom. I am sincerely grateful for the people that formed this country and risked their lives for me to have the freedom that I experience today. Thank you to all of the veterans, military personnel, and families that support them. I’m especially grateful for those that have given their lives for our freedom. Without your sacrifice, my success could not have been possible.
As I contemplate the meaning of freedom for me, I can’t help but think of my experience in life and encourage you to reflect on what freedom means to you. I recognize that my idea of freedom may be different than another’s, and that there are different kinds of freedom: personal freedom, political freedom, and religious freedom to name a few. I understand that the formation of our country was not perfect by any means, and that there was a tremendous amount of inequality and injustice for many. However, I’m happy that we continually learn from our past and have the freedom to change our future to include a more just and equal society. As the French playwright, Albert Camus, said, “Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better.”
