Spiritual Awakening: Dropping An F Bomb
Okay it is not what you think, no I dropped another F word, fellowship as I was discussing how great it was to see so many people gathering to celebrate their respective holidays. I am very blessed that I was able to celebrate bith Passover and Easter and commune with GOD and continue on my path to create a oneness consciousness and to understand that GOD did not mean for us to be alone. GOD intended us to fellowship with others and to share with others. Both of these festive holidays give us a time to fellowship with others and share how god is working in our life.
When we talk about fellowship we must understand that it is a gathering to give praise and to lift on high ourselves and others to GOD and to be joyful in all that he has created for us.
As GOD has created this day let us take a moment to share in fellowship with others and lift them up and celebrate them and rejoice in the beauty that GOD has created. Fellowship can be done in any setting as long as you are giving glory to GOD. It is when we recognize the greatness that GOD has given us that we truly create and expand our spiritual awakening. GOD has given us many gifts to use to be great and to help others be great. When you greet someone during fellowship do you recognize their greatness and thus build them up? Do you encourage others to follow their dreams? Do you applaud and celebrate the accomplishments of others? Are you someone who takes action by sharing your anthems and thus helping others to come alive?
Using The F Bomb
When using the word Fellowship it transcends all cultures as shows that the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations. I remember the first time The F Bomb was dropped my way I was in The Philippines as a U.S. Peace Corps Volumteer and my host family’s son said hey brother why don’t you come to fellowship with me. I of course said of course not knowing what he meant and after a jeepney ride to the church he began to introduce me and then made sure I was assigned to someone who could translate the service to me as it was being conducted in Tagalog and after the service I was educated to what was meant by fellowship as we shared in a feast and let others know how GOD was working in our lives. I would attend many services and activities at a variety of Churches and found they all had something in common a love for one another. I learned so much that dropping the F Bomb became second nature. People would ask where are you goin and I would say, I am going to fellowship.
This is one of the churches in Los Banos, Laguana Philippines.I passed this church every day for 8 weeks and many times was invited in to fellowship. It was quite the experience me speaking in my broken Tagalog and the worshippers speaking in their broken English. Some how we found common ground by sharing passages from The Bible.
This is where I spent Pre Service Training 2 it is The University of The Philippines Los Banos. I had many opportunities to fellowship with my fellow U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers and our Filipino Counterparts. It was here that I was given the moniker JDOGG as we all went out for a night of Karaeoke and those with me kept saying hey JDOGG why don’t you sing and I did and since that night I have been JDOGG. The Karaeoke was our way of doing fellowship.
This is the Botanical Garden in San Fernando La Union, Philippines where I would visit and fellowship with GOD to assist me in being centered, grounded, and focused.
As you begin to Drop the F Bomb and lift yourself up and lift others up may you do so in the glory of GOD. There are many ways to fellowship the key is to always remember that it is about rejoicing and celebrating others. May your Passover and Easter be blessed and filled with much fellowship that will carry on throughout the year.
