The heavy subject of atonement is nothing to make light of. But reconciling to the Being of Light  requires nothing less.

The word “atonement” means reparation for a wrong or injury. It derives from a word that denotes “unity” or “reconciliation,” especially between God and man. Its earliest form came from a now obsolete verb “to one” which meant to unite. Atonement was the combination of the word parts of at+ one + -ment.

McKenzie River

The beautiful McKenzie river originates in Clear Lake in the Cascade mountains. It flows out of the lake big as life, and tumbles down the mountain over rocks and around curves, following the path of least resistance. Occasionally it goes into free fall over cliffs in a spectacular display of beauty and power. Once, it even goes underground for a few miles, only to reemerge in a pool of crystal clear, startlingly blue water.

HOW CAN I FEEL SAFE IN CROWDS? LISTEN FOR ANGELS

Recent terrorist events in the middle east and Europe and in the U.S. were aimed at families who were together in public places.

We don’t want to be naive or foolish but we also don’t want to let a few crazed zealots shape our public life.
