                                   Our Spiritual Manners

What are the appropriate manners that we bring to the banquet table of our lives? When I moved from New York City to North Carolina, I noticed how many people here in the south say they “appreciate” things. How does this appreciation play out in our day to day lives? I’m not speaking about the etiquette of meeting and greeting people, or the way we conduct ourselves at the dinner table( knowing what knife, fork, and spoon to use at just the right time).  I’m speaking about the day to day etiquette we use in our day to day living while experiencing life on this wonderful planet of ours.  A modern day expert on etiquette, Emily Post, offers a view of manners beyond the dining room table with this little gem: “Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners no matter what fork you use.”
See you on Sunday!

Rev. Michael J. Carter


We are often told to get in touch with them. We are often told to keep them in check. In certain schools of Eastern thought we are taught to just be aware of and to observe them as they are impermanent and ever-changing. There is truth to all of this, yet, however one looks at it; we cannot really become a healthy human being without them. Obviously, I am referring to our feelings. How do we get over this Western notion, this love affair with the intellect, to balance heart and mind, to become the whole, authentic and integrated people we are meant to be? Let’s explore this balancing act of what it means to be human; let’s talk about feelings.
