Spiritual service

The symbol that rules our lives is the “even-armed cross of discipleship,” upon that cross we take our stand, receiving inspiration from above (the vertical axis of the cross) and giving of ourselves in service (the horizontal axis)-- all the while maintaining our focus in the center, the midway spot. Our spiritual life can only become effective as we learn to “distribute” that which we have received into our environment. As we travel that path, we find that our understanding of the term “environment” expands as we come to view ourselves eventually as planetary citizens.
