“Wherever you place your foot, there rests a blessing.”  – Rumi

When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”  And Moses said, “Here I am.” “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”  – Exodus 3:4-5

The Blessing Cup!  Blessings.  What are they?  How do they come?  What do they do for us?  The dictionary defines blessing as: “to consecrate or to hallow by a religious rite of words; to make or pronounce holy or sacred.”  To bless is not so much to “make sacred,” however, as it is to acknowledge the sacredness that is already there.  All of creation is sacred because it is made by God.   Wherever we place our feet – wherever we are – can be a blessing if we are aware of the inherent sacredness and beauty of that place.  All the places where we are standing is holy ground.

This Sunday is the Thanksgiving Sunday.  As we reflect on our gratitude to God for all that God has done for us and we pray through the Blessing Cup, may we grow in awareness of the countless blessings that are ours.  May we become more aware of how we ourselves are a blessing in the lives of others.  Most of all, may our love and appreciation for the Giver of all gifts, the best of all blessings, continue to grow and be enriched.   (The Cup of Our Life, P. 118)

Bring a cup that represents blessing of your life!  Join us.
