Dear Universal Family & Friends,
Thank you, ALL of YOU for your continuing kindness and your support!
I will graduate from One Spirit Interfaith Seminary at 4pm on June 22, 2008. And I would be honored if you are able,---- please attend in person, or in Spirit.
As many of you know, after traveling from Pittsburgh to Santa Fe , Phoenix, and back to New York City, I have finally found my calling----I, Melony McGant am Betty J. Tilman's daughter and ----"service is the rent for my space on Earth"...
Luddy Hayden, an old family friend, told me in 1999 that I "just needed to become a Minister". I remember telling him all the reasons why I could not, and would not in this lifetime ever consider that choice. Ha, Ha, Ha--- Our Blessed Divine Spirit had a another plan for me.
Since coming to NYC in the Spring of 1999, I have been blessed to write and publish; to travel and act as an assistant to the legendary Katherine Dunham; to work as director of marketing for Dr. Glory Van Scott Productions, and to become a professional storyteller with a passion for children .
Through my journeys, I have been led by, and inspired by a Universal Force that some call Divine Creator and others call Allah, and others call Yaweh, or Jehovah or God. This calling has truly inspired me to continue to assist others, to live life with joy, and to believe that we can collectively create a world that works for all.
Please print this invitation, and bring it with you as my personal guest. I look forward to seeing or hearing from you!
With Love, Gratitude and Respect, Melony

On Becoming A Minister
Melony McGant, poet, storyteller, humanist and world lover of children lives on HOPE; works to breathe in love, and exhales fear (false expectations appearing real). She says "Perhaps our current challenges are wake-up calls for our collective awakening to truth." And she believes that the truth is, there is no need for our constant bickering, our disdain for eachother, for wars and killing, for world hunger, massive disease, for discrimination, subjugation, or oppression. She maintains that LOVE, even on a rainy day, is the answer to our dreams, our individual quests, and our future collective identity. "If we can learn to value our children, our elders, ourselves, and our Mother Earth=Heart, then surely we have the power to impact society and to create a world filled with JOY."
