First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia ~ Welcome home!


When the world is in chaos, we can return to our center and maintain a sense of calm in a sea of unrest. If we allow ourselves to be thrown off by every piece of disturbing news that comes our way, we may be relying too much on our emotions. When our feelings and thoughts activate each other in a hectic way, we become caught up in the confusion that surrounds us. However, locating the stillness at the center of our hearts helps us find composure in almost any situation. Moreover, we provide a safe place for our friends and family, who may be prone to taking on the confusion of a world in flux. People who maintain a sense of calm centeredness when everything around them is in a state of flux are wonderful to be around. Just being near them helps us feel calmer, because they activate our own sense of inner peace. Often these times enable us to find a part of ourselves that knows how to cope, and how to be a light to others in the storm. We needn’t completely understand what’s happening at this particular moment, nor do we need to be able to predict the future. We just need to return to our center and find our way to being at peace with whatever happens. Cultivating peace can occur through reading words of inspiration, journaling, meditation and prayer. All will lead us to that place that’s already there waiting.

From My Heart to Yours,

Rev. Addae
