A word from Rev. Felicia…
What is The Revolution of Love ministry ?
I had a vision in November 2009 while attending the annual School of the Americas vigil led by Fr. Roy Bourgeois at Fort Benning Georgia. In my mind’s eye I saw a ministry where people-regardless of color, orientation, faith tradition or no tradition, class, age, gender, etc.-could come together. It would be safe. It would be joyous. It would be all inclusive. It would also be founded on the principles of agape love, compassion, and nonviolent theory for EVERYONE. That means everyone. It would be a place to worship outside of the box (way outside) and still concretely dive deep into the inner work. Lastly, this ministry I saw would not quit there. No. Realizing that inner work alone is only part of it, there would be the recognition of the divine honor and responsibility we have to do the outer work through being of service. This vision came in boldly as I sat at a Mexican food restaurant the night before the 20,000 person vigil honoring victims of violence.
This was a gift freely given. I/We bring it to You. We/I welcome you to the Revolution. If this moment in history is teaching us anything it is that LOVE must be the all provider, all healer, all knower. It is what must be left standing in the room at the end of the day. No matter what. Let us find our way together.
No matter who you are, who you love, where you come from, what you look like, or what you believe, you are family. We welcome you. We love you.
Welcome to this Revolution.
Blessings, Rev. Felicia
