Sermon Summary

Title: Heart of Gold

http://seattleunity.org—In this Sunday sermon titled “Heart of Gold“ Rev. Karen Lindvig elaborates on the Annual Theme of the Transformational Journey, by exploring the mental journey of the various experiences of the Golden Rule.

The Golden Rule: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”

Karen told the story of the monkey and the fish to illustrate the particulars of how to practice the Golden Rule with those who’s needs and preferences are different than our own. She also quoted President Kennedy in 1963 urging an ethic of the Golden Rule.

Rev. Karen urges the members of our Seattle Unity Spiritual Community to follow the Golden Rule in its many manifestations.

In the past, only a select few were given the path to awakening. Today it is available to all, therefore:

  • Wake up, rise higher and go deeper than you ever have before.
  • Make love manifest on this planet.
  • Put into practice ancient teachings that have crossed the globe.
  • Take advantage of this critical time in history.
  • Follow the path on your journey offered by the Golden Rule.
  • The Golden Rule can be found all across the world in every spiritual tradition and well as in the stories carried from generation to generation.
