GHR 2014 Q2: Unity/Affirmation-Diversity

Global Healing Response Quarterly

2014 Theme: Unity

So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth. —Baha’u’llah 

April-May-June
Focus: Affirmation/Diversity

Quote:  “I know there is strength in the differences between us. I know there is comfort, where we overlap.” ― Ani DiFranco

Color:  Yellow like the sun that shines on all of us.

Prayer:
Holy ones, help us to live a life of clear seeing of the light in each soul.  Help us to let the distinctions of race, gender, class, orientation and appearance fall away in the bright light of our affirmation of the essential goodness we each possess.  Help us to show our affirmation loud and clear in our thoughts, words and deeds.  —Judith Tripp

Ideas for benefiting organization:
Find an organization in your community that celebrates diversity!

Ideas for ambiance:
A mixture of textures of cloth, images, objects, instruments, global sense, representing the diversity of your community, the diversity of our world, as we move to walk and dance in unity. May the walk be a time and way to move together and honor the other.

Music:
Sweet Honey in the Rock’s “Sacred Ground” (http://www.amazon.com/Sacred-Ground-Sweet-Honey-Rock/dp/B000002M7R)

Exerpt of lyrics from the song “We are” on the “Sacred Ground” CD
“We are Mothers of courage, fathers of time
Daughters of dust, sons of great visions
We are sisters of mercy, brothers of love
Lovers of life and the builders of nations”
