When you’re going through a tough life event or you’ve had a bad week for some reason or another it’s always a blessing to hear a message of hope from someone when you least expect it. A few Sundays ago I was shooting my weekly religion assignment and had the pleasure of listening to pastor Teresa Angle-Young deliver her Sunday sermon at Sacred Tapestry in Marietta.

Admittedly I don’t always enjoy or agree with the sermons I hear while on assignment but Pastor Angle-Young spoke to my heart!

I wan’t try to butcher her sermon by recounting it but I will share a touching poem by John O’Donohue that she recieted.

_On that day when the weight deadens on your shoulders and you stumble, may the clay dance to balance you. And When the ghost of loss gets into you, may a flock of colors–indigo, red, green, and azure blue–come to awaken in you a meadow of delight. When the canvas frays and the stain of ocean blackens beneath you, may there come across the waters a path of yellow moonlight to bring you safely home. May the nourishment of the earth by yours, may the clarity of light be yours, may the fluency of the ocean be yours, may the protection of the ancestors be yours, and so may a slow wind work these words of love around you, an invisible cloak to mind your life._

– from Anam Cara by John O’Danahue

I’ve noticed a big trend among churches to include a coffee bar in the church building. I think it’s funny that coffee and coffee houses are so much apart of our lives that they have trickled into religion.
Even the youngster in the photo below likes the trend. Not to worry though he’s only drinking hot chocolate.
