Title: “Getting in Touch with Your Inner Apocalypse”
http://seattleunity.org — The Annual Theme for Rev. Karen Lindvig’s 2019 sermons is “Riding the Tide of Impermanence.” This sermon by Rev. Michael Bogar is titled “Getting in Touch with Your Inner Apocalypse.” In this sermon, Rev. Bogar provides an overview of his work on the archetype of “The Apocalypse” and its meaning in our lives in a community and in a world with impermanence. Noting the process of tearing down and rebuilding our building, he clearly defines foundational concepts in his work with applying the Apocalypse archetype towards spiritual development.
Ideas related to this sermon:
The word “apocalypse” can mean “to unveil or reveal.”
Every culture has apocalyptic stories about the end of the former world and the unveiling of a new world. Viewed psychologically, this suggests that each of us is in a constant process of not only making veils to hide behind, but also of seeing them pulled open to reveal hidden or new aspects of an emerging Self.
Like the Wizard of OZ, we are always in some stage of hiding or being revealed. We will explore this common experience of the lens of the Biblical Book of Revelations, aka, The Apocalypse.
How to learn more about the archetype “The Apocalypse”:
Rev. Bogar is offering a series of five classes on this topic. The class is called “Archetype of the Apocalypse: Reading the Book of Revelation from a Depth Psychology Perspective.”
The classes run on Wednesdays, starting March 6th—April 3rd, from 7 PM to 9 PM each evening, at Seattle Unity Church.

Meg Howard Reading of “Let Go, Let God”:
Let Go, Let God
(From the Unity publication “Daily Word”)
“With confidence and in faith, I let go and let God.
“The power in committing something to prayer comes not when I make a request, but when I release my attachment to the outcome and accept what unfolds. What I’m seeing with my human understanding is just a small piece of the overall picture. The path I travel comes together like a divine puzzle; perfect pieces from expected and unexpected sources fall into place as I go.
“As I open to the energy of prayer, I relax into the awareness that I may not yet have every answer, every piece to complete the puzzle. I have faith that everything is in divine order and then release it all to my Source. I no longer try to dictate a specific solution and instead trust that each outcome is for the best. With confidence and in faith, I let go and let God.”
