There is a line in a song from Hamilton that states, "You have no control over who lives, who dies, who tells your story." There is great truth in that line, for we all know the pain of losing someone before we thought it was their time. This past Sunday, we held our annual memorial service, in which we remembered and honored those who have come before us, those who have left before us. It is always good to reflect, remember, and to show our respect.
While we may not be able to control so much of life, we can control the stories we tell, the journeys we share, and the heart-fought wisdom we have gained. Those friends, family, and champions whose light has blessed this earth, and whose victories we cherish, are the stories that we can bring forward to offer for those who have ears to hear.
This Sunday, we offer one such story that we must tell again, The Spiritual Lessons of Hamilton. This long-forgotten journey of one of our founding fathers is the epitome of the Unity principle that thoughts and words have creative power, along with the American principle of success based on merit, not birth. The story we tell is both a road-map and a cautionary tale. Join us this Sunday for a new look at an American classic.
