Today is PALM SUNDAY for the Christian Faithful – usually a day set aside for pageantry and Pomp, recognizing the story of Jesus’s triumphant entry into the Holy City at the beginning of Passover, setting off a week of dramatic events that lead to his trial, crucifixion and death.

Last Sunday, I began our July series on Creativity with the message on the Power of Co-Creation. You can view the whole service here. I want you to remember a few key things from this message. You are a co-creator with the universe. You always have been and you always will be. Regardless of whether this has been known by you in the past or not. This power is also using YOU. It is utilizing you as its outlet – its vehicle for expression and expansion. As such you are supported by......
