Welcome back! We are free to start our lives over each day, each moment. This thing called a new year is certainly convenient for hitting the re-set button.

🚲 The Year of 2020 Vision 🌄

Fire with sunset

As we welcome a new decade, we continue co-creating a WORLD that works for everyone by first creating the Life that works for ourselves individually, a life of Love, Abundance, Balance, Wisdom and Freedom. In our spiritual community, we share our unique and wonderful personalities and gifts to co-create a spiritual community that works for all of us. For 2020, let’s pledge to explore how we do this in an atmosphere of collaboration and cooperation.

During our time together this Sunday, Spiritual Practitioners Joanne Hepworth and Amy Perry will lead us in a beautiful ritual for letting go of what no longer serves us and affirming a vision for 2020. With music by Spiritual Practitioner Norm Hogeland!

We meditate before service from 10- 10:45. All are welcome!

2 Ladies at Christmas

❄ Tidings of Joy! ❄

The 7 stages of Hanuka. Umoja, Kujichagulia, Ujima, Ukamaa, Nia, Kuumba, Imani.

Tidings of Joy!

Let’s take in a nice deep breath together, as we take in eons worth of Joy and Love for this holiday season – joy for all faiths. Another deep breath, we breathe in and into the Light.

Immersed in Light we know this is the Way, the Truth and our Life. It is All that Is. In this place No Thing exists but the Light. We can call the Light God, Yahweh, Quan Yin, Buddha, Vishnu – names aren’t really important. It’s the experience, the deep connection in the Oneness of It all.

We are that. We are the Way, we are Truth, and most certainly we are Light. The more we drop our attachment to our human situations, the more we experience ourselves as this Truth.
We rest in this Space. We revel in It. We are it!

The Christ/Buddha Conscious isn’t coming. It’s here. It’s now. And with every conscious breath. Every aware action, It expands and multiplies.

Please join us this Sunday to hear a talk by Spiritual Practitioner Terry Oliver in the Spirit of the season.

❄ Happy Solstice! ☀

Winter Solstice is the “earth’s” celebration of MORE light coming into the world. Many native peoples throughout all time were concerned when daylight was diminishing day by day as they headed into winter. And then, a day came with more sunlight than the day before. Holly-lueah!..the light is returning. If the sun was your only evidence of a caring, loving God, you would appreciate this return.

During our time together this Sunday, Spiritual Practitioner Amy Perry will lead us in celebrating the Winter Solstice.

We meditate before service from 10- 10:45. All are welcome!

This holiday season I celebrate the birth of the Christ principle within me. I nurture this principle, and care for it, so that it successfully grows within me, making me into a most excellent example of itself.

For the holidays, we are partnering with TERRIFIC Inc., a 40 year old 501(c)3 nonprofit tax-exempt housing and support service organization. Daily, TERRIFIC plans and delivers direct-care senior and caregiver services. This holiday season we will be supporting Multi-Generational Families. DeAnna Nara has found three families that have these requests:
1. The Petris family would like a coat for their 16 year old daughter
2. The Blackwell family would like coats, hats, gloves, a doll & legos for their boy & girl, ages five & six
3. The Holley family would like coats, puzzles, dolls, games & toys for their girls ages one and five and their boys ages six, 11 and 14. Their 11 year old son would also like books.
Please contact DeAnna (DeAnnaNara@yahoo.com / 240.315.3778) with any questions & feel free to bring gifts to service through the end of the year. !Gracias!

🌎 Make Every Day a Holy Day 🌈

Looking from space over earth and the sun with Peace on Earth written in between.

Make Everyday a Holy Day

Season’s greetings! We need only look to our multitudinous human experiences in life to see where fear and a false separation from God take its toll; while according to the same Law, initiated from the higher inclinations of Infinite Love, bring forth, the ‘miracle’ of a Light filled and Grace-full path of Divine Presence, unified with Universal Creative Power, truly demonstrating Heaven, right here on Earth.

Please join us this Sunday to hear a talk by Sheila Alexander-reid on the Spirit of the season.

🎆 Waking Up! 🎇

Man doing Yoga in the middle of an active crowd.
contemplation

We would do well to spend time examining our thoughts deeply, adjusting and fine tuning them as needed, to have us be in greater alignment with Truth. By doing so daily, we will conclude that we are whole, perfect, and complete. We will discover that we are as eternal and vast as the space that spans beyond the myriad universes, and anything is possible. We’ll embody the idea that in each and every person we meet, we are meeting and greeting our secret and unseen Self – the Self within all selves; none greater or lesser in whole or worth.

🌕 Self Mastery 🌑

Person holding hands up into sunset.

Self Mastery

Self-mastery is not a state of being, or a skill that we can use to conquer life and gain control over our desires, aims, and abilities. It is, rather, the result of an ongoing growth process of inquiry into the self. When Ram Dass named his classic book on meditation, Journey of Awakening, he specifically used the word of rather than to so that his readers would, at the start, be aware that there was no destination, no final arriving in the journey upon which they were embarking. Self-mastery is such a journey, and inquiry is the vehicle for that journey.

Join us to hear a talk by Reverend Michele this Sunday on this topic.

🌎 Morality & Spirituality 🍃

Morality & Spirituality

Loaded words! So often when we think of morals, judgment comes to mind.
Yet our true test of morality is whether we are in integrity with ourselves and our own divine nature.
