Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
The Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship continues virtual services on the first and third Sundays of the month.
Please join us on this Sunday, April 4, at 10 a.m. as we gather to discuss what security, serenity and peace of mind mean to you.
The Rev. Christine Robinson and Alicia Hawkins, in their book “Listening Hearts,” discuss security, the need to feel in control and what is peace of mind.
They note the following are characteristics of those who foster peace of mind: trusting, living in the present, accepting what you can’t change, avoiding denial, connecting with others in time of stress, accepting responsibility, living an honorable life, and striking a balance between what you want to do and what you can actually do.
They note: “Peace of mind is not a matter of never exerting ourselves for a better future but of choosing our battles wisely and not expending energy pointlessly.”
About security, they continue: “They are not in denial about life’s problems … It involves accepting appropriate responsibility for our lives and circumstances and realistic understanding that life is never completely secure.”
