The Rebirthing of God: Reconnecting with Love and the Unconscious, by Don Portwood, Lyndale United Church of Christ, Minneapolis, MN  10/26/14
(the 4th of a 4 part series)

This is my last sermon in the series from J. Phillip Newell's book, The Rebirthing of God, and how fitting that it starts out with reconnecting with love.  If, as I said last week, deep within us is the diamond essence of God and as I John 4:16 says, "God is love", then to reconnect with what is deepest within us, God, is to reconnect with love.  God is love.  Love is God;love, the only force that has the power to truly bring together the apparent opposites in our lives and our world.

Phillip says the symbol of that is the cross, the mystery at the heart of Christianity; the belief that love can reconcile all things.  The cross points to the love that so endured in Jesus for the poorest and most powerless of his people that he found the strength to go to Jerusalem to confront the holders of false power in his nation.  As have others, like Gandhi, Archbishop Oscar Romero, and Rosa Parks.

Phillip writes in this chapter about Simone Weil  (1909-1943), a French philosopher, mystic and political activist, who believed that the universe is essentially a vibration of God, that the universe in an expression of love and everything in the universe is essentially a means to love.
