A Ministry of Inspiration – that’s my ministry. The world is my pulpit, people inside and outside churches are my parishioners. My business cards say, “Patricia Kay Hatch, Inspirational Preaching and Speaking.” I already preach in churches and give heartening talks at Toastmasters, but I plan to do more inspirational speaking in other venues. I will begin seeking out paid inspirational speaking opportunities in June. I also have an uplifting ministry through my writing. I write poetry, inspirational sermons and secular talks, and blog entries. (You can read my blog at inspiration4u.gaia.com.) I just had my first article accepted about how the essence of the Golden Rule is in virtually all religions (“The Golden Rule Rules”) for the Pure Inspiration magazine website. I plan to do more inspirational writing, and touch many lives. My message is that we are connected to the Divine, and that we are co-creators of our lives. We get to help choose the course of our lives through our thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and actions. I seek to encourage others to follow the deep desires of their hearts and to connect their gifts and passions with the places where they can make a difference in the world.
