Got Insomnia?

sleep is preciousThis is Christine! In my job as a counselor at a character-education nonprofit, I have been talking with young people about their faith and growth for some years.

Talking about the “inner life” is rewarding to me. However, at night my mind then will sometimes not calm down and keeps racing along. Often I cannot sleep. And so I figured that I might be an insomniac after all.

In the past, it has helped me to be able to pick up the phone in the middle of the night and call another insomniac friend for a chat “much ado about nothing.”

If you are also one of us folks who sometimes cannot fall asleep at night, join our community and you may find people to call – at night when you cannot sleep.

“Forcing sleep can backfire because it resists force. Eventually, this knowledge can enable us to let go and allow sleep to come on its own terms as a gift rather than a means in order to function. In grasping sleep indirectly, we can become more creative, curious and open to change.”

On your profile page, you would find a toggle switch to simply indicate that you are up and willing to chat. That status also shows in the searchable directory. So, you then can be found for a chat, or find someone to chat a little with at night.

You’ll need an invitation code to join, it helps to keep this online community safe. Please contact me or a current member for the invitation code at your convenience.

Marriage Blessing

Most newly-found couples like to publicly acknowledge, dedicate or formalize their union in one way or another. For people of faith, a wedding ceremony is the preferred event to dedicate their new union to a higher purpose. Wedding traditions and customs vary greatly between cultures, ethnic groups, religions, countries, and social classes.

One such tradition is that of the Marriage Blessing. I am proud to promote the Marriage Blessing tradition.

The Rev. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, founders of Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, began the tradition of the Marriage Blessing in 1960. Based on their lifelong commitment to a world of strong marriages and empowered families, the Marriage Blessing has become a worldwide tradition where couples dedicate their marriage to a greater purpose and God.

The Marriage Blessing is an opportunity for couples to renew or begin their marriage relationship through a new commitment to live purposefully for the world and God. In response to the breakdown of traditional marriage in our world, the Marriage Blessing offers a path to build a world of stronger marriages and healthier families.

By participating in this ceremony, couples become part of a worldwide community of Blessed Couples striving to embody God’s love, and create a better world for families.
