The Beatitudes:
A Path of Healing and Wholeness

Beautiful Autumn Scene Invites To A Walk

Blessed are they…

We hear the familiar introduction to those most beautiful, heart-opening, and somewhat daunting teachings of Jesus, in the collection of his wisdom known as the Sermon on the Mount. We call them The Beatitudes.

…who hunger and thirst for righteousness…

Maybe we have read these eight verses so many times, the truths they hold barely register in our conscious minds. Possibly we have dismissed them altogether, believing them to be of a different time, or of a standard that is impossible to meet. In this morning of teaching, contemplation and community, we invite you to engage with these most sacred teachings in an intentional, conscious, and contemplative way.

…for they will be filled.

Jesus seems to have given us these precious gems of wisdom as a pathway into the wholeness to which we are called no matter what our religious tradition. By receiving them into our Being, allowing them to guide our inner healing and deepen our connection with God and ourselves, we open to the transformation they surely have to offer.
