Thought for the Week: Our cosmic father

We celebrate Father’s Day this Sunday and what better way to celebrate than to acknowledge the cosmic father of us all. Jesus taught us to pray the “Our Father” prayer and I imagine most are familiar with this ancient prayer.
But are you aware that Jesus’ mother tongue was Aramaic, which is very close to Hebrew. Our church will hold a special workshop on Saturday, June 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. where Rev. Ute Maria Cedilla will teach us to speak this beautiful prayer in Aramaic. Rev. Cedilla will also be speaking at our Sun¬day morning service at 11 a.m. in Fuller Hall. Please consider attending and avail yourself of this powerful prayer.
Following is an abbreviated version of the English translation of the Our Father as spoken in Jesus’ original language.
“Oh Birther, Mother, Father of the cosmos, focus your Light within us; make it useful. Create your reign of unity now. Your one desire then acts with ours, as in one light, so in all forms. Grant what we need each day in bread and insight. Loose the cords of mistakes binding us, as we release the strands we hold of other’s guilt. Don’t let surface things dilute us; but free us from what holds us back. From You is born all ruling will; the power and the life to be, the song that beautifies all. From age to age it renews. Truly, power to these statements; may they be the ground from which all my actions grow. Amen.”
I personally love saying this version in my morning prayers; I highly recommend it and look forward to seeing you this coming weekend. Namaste.
— Rev. Gay Beauregard, Alpine Church of Spiritual
