And They All Fall Down

As I sat quietly in the wake of the story of the crucifixion of Jesus on this Self-Care Saturday, reading my morning reflection (A Jesus Who Builds Walls MARCH 6, 2019 / JOHN PAVLOVITZ); I began to reimagine the call to which so many of us have answered yes to and realized anew that the work of the Christ at work within me this day is to not build walls but to tear them down. Any wall that would separate families, bring it down now! Any wall that would attempt to dispel the light of the dreamer, in the name of all that is holy, tear it down. Any wall that serves to distract us from our Soul’s purpose, stand back and let it fall down. Any wall that shows up in the form of hate, oppression, inequality and bias; get a running start and knock it down. If the wall does not shelter us from the storm, protect the meek, give us something to stand on to improve our perspective, bring it down. If the wall is you, your biased rhetoric, your binary thinking, your insecurities, your blatant disregard for the light and humanity of others, your fear of difference and change, then you too are a wall that seeks to divide the essence of the best parts of our bey and yes you too must fall down.

Let today be the day that you find the courage to speak to all the points of real and potential division in your life. My hope is for the strength of your words, “Tear down this wall!”

About Kathy Beasley

Hello Friends, I am Kathy and I am fully committed to helping people discover the truth of who they are by employing my gifts of teaching, speaking, writing, leading and meeting them where they are on their journey. In my role as a Unity Minister, I have found that the greatest work that Spiritual Communities can do in the world has very little to do with those gathered around the table with us, it is for those who exist beyond our walls, liturgy, table and awareness. I am not here to make you comfortable, I am here to challenge you by disturbing your peace. With the help of others, I employ a passionate perspective of utilizing the unconventionality of technology and public theology to help reach out beyond the traditional and social aspects of "church" to those who could benefit from a positive and practical message of hope and peace. Thank you for taking this journey with me and please know that your presence helps make me who I am. This is my story… What’s yours?
