"Me too!...I need more!
- MBC
"Great day today at Metron."

 “...A very awesome NOW word from Bishop Jim Swilley. The Power Of Meditation.
- RWK
"I have the privilege of being in the most inclusive, progressive, out of the box spiritual community ever! I LOVE METRON!!
- WC
"Today was so good! Interesting some things you said in beginning about rest from thinking all the time, and kinosis, emptying one's self. When we got into meditation for a brief second I heard my Mother say, "Don't worry about a thing, honey". Can't tell you what that meant. Then when you explained creation as, light, breath, and word spoken over a thing. Wow! Still processing the power of that in every day things. Last, Zach mentioned Meditation vs. Medication, thought vs. chemicals. That was very good. Thoughts can be cleansing and healing or destructive as can medicine used in extreme or as a band-aid. So much good out of learning this."

 "I'm not quite sure how to describe what I feel, but I agree there has been a change for Metron. Really, I began to sense it at the picnic. A sweetness, a quiet celebration of one another's journeys. As you said even words aren't always necessary when we're on the same page. Today was great, that quiet unity."
- BLR
"Today was excellent at Metron. No sermon, no presures..Just a now word for this day. Tomorrow will take care of itself if we apply our minds to this moment and remember to "Let there be light"on anything we do. Thanks Bishop Jim Swilley."

METRON'S 3rd ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION - 8/6/17

In every blog post about each Sunday at Metron we generally include some of the comments that were posted, texted or inboxed about that particular service or about the day in general...

But there were so many rave reviews written about our Third Anniversary Celebration at Piedmont Park on Sunday, and most of them were so lengthy, they just can't all be contained here in one posting...

So we're just going to let the amazing pictures speak for themselves on this one...

A big thank you to Jon Scott and company, and to everyone else who spoke, sang, prophesied, brought food, had fun, met new people, laughed, cried and were just a beautiful part of a perfect day...

It was absolutely unforgettable...

TODAY AT METRON - 7/30/17

"I have to say, I have spent my whole youth in church, and my whole young adulthood avoiding it. I thought I would never step foot in a church again, and I was right. Jim Swilley showed me a community of people that all wanted the same thing. To be pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that only worked together to create the beautiful picture we were all trying to imagine on our own, but needed each other's help to create it. Metron is what makes your week out right."
- CE
"This series has been special, with a sweetness added by Eddie William Sellers music. Today with the "Rainbow Connection", I thought of in the book of Revelation where it speaks of the rainbow that surrounds the throne. So cool since the LGBT community has been associated with the rainbow. My whole life growing up gay, for years in the church world we were programmed to see ourselves as damned, and going to hell, not possibly surrounding the throne. The song made me cry, because now, even my family who are all in Heaven know, when my life is over, I will join them.
 Through all the trauma and drama of my life, the healing process has been slow, but today I realized in a new way when Bishop Jim Swilley echoed the thought I read posted the other day. It said, "I can't heal you, but I can love you, and you can heal yourself." When we feel loved, and accepted as who we are, with all our history, we can begin to love ourselves, and heal ourselves, and with it help others do the same."

- BLR
"Great gathering at Metron today, so much fun..."
- ES
"Today was so good. I needed everything that was given out today. Some singing, a bunch of laughter with motivation to live life free and intentionally every day. All I can say is..It gets better as time goes by..I came home with my energy tank filled again."
- FM
 "It's the highlight of my week."
- CE
Amen!
