S2Ep36 Looking Up Can Change Everything

April 1, 2024

Good morning from New York City. I come to you this morning with a full heart. I think the expression goes my cup runneth over. Easter was really beautiful. I ventured back to the Marble Collegiate Church on Fifth Ave. Now, I’m not a church goer. I’m basically one of those people who goes on Easter and Christmas. I went last year with my friend Sarah Forden who was in town and this year I pushed myself to go alone. Going to church alone felt kind of funny, but I wanted to push myself because I’ve come back to New York after these six months on the road and I want to maintain the momentum behind trying new things and pushing myself outside of my comfort zone. So when I woke up, I said, come on, Constance let’s go and get yourself to church. It’s a beautiful day to go. And indeed, it was.

There are a couple of things I like about this church in particular. One is that it is very representative of New York City. There are people from all over the world and you really see that when you walk through the door. But what I love most is when you walk into a church that has an active congregation, you can really feel this palpable sense of community. The DNA of this particular church actually comes from the origins, I think. It was the church of Norman Vincent Peale who wrote the book ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’ and there’s this positive energy in the church. You feel instantly happy that you made the effort to go. Of course it was Easter, so there were beautiful flowers, an orchestra, a choir, and the organ was ringing out. It was glorious.
