August Theme – A World that Works for Everyone
Reverand Molly

Thanks for reading our website!

This month’s Value: Love, Compassion and Caring:  We embrace Love as the Self-Givingness of God to all creation, moving through us into expression as compassion, caring, mutual respect and kindness.  We express interest in and support for the well-being of ourselves and others. We express unconditional love when observing the suffering of others and do what we can to give aid and show compassion.

Our philosophy, Science of Mind by Dr. Ernest Holmes, teaches us that with the power of the mind, specifically through intention and thought, we influence our experience. For 100 years now, New Thought thinkers have used spiritual law to bring about what they needed to thrive, whether meaningful work or relationships, health, money or transportation.

In this new century, in this new millennium, our philosophy is maturing as we broaden our definition of thriving to include all others, everywhere. We’ve opened and expanded our minds; now we’re working at the heart level, which ultimately holds the greatest of all powers – Love. Compassion. Caring. How’s this for a 21st Century slogan – “Change your thinking, change your life. Change your heart, change the world!”

Here is what’s on offer on Sundays in August:

August 6 – Compassion in Action

A Holmes Reader on Practical Wisdom: Compassion and caring are the ties that bind us together in mutual understanding and in the unified attempt to uncover the Divinity in each other.  Compassion is the most gentle of all human virtues, for it is the outpouring of the Divine givingness through all.

Talk Title: Accepting Our Human Experience and the Spiritual Truth – guest speaker, Rev. Catherine Long

Chris Michaels, Your Soul’s Assignment: If every person knew they were loved and accepted by God exactly as they are right now, the world could be instantly transformed!  The power of that acceptance and the sense of safety it brings could change people’s lives overnight.

August 20 –Falling Apart – guest speaker, Kristen Peairs, RScP

From Elegant Choices, Healing Choices by Marsha Sinetar: Our own wholeness, integration, and actualization knit us back together when we fall away…bond us with tiny life-sustaining stitches whenever and wherever we are separated.

August 27 – Being Kind in a Cruel World

Ernest Holmes, It’s Up to You: We must not be disturbed by the contradiction of objective experience. We shall have to know that the Truth we announce is superior to the condition which it is to change. We shall have to see that God in us recognizes God in the other person until the God in the other person recognizes God in us. This cannot be done by human will. It is only when we recognize the pure essence of the spiritual Principle inherent and incarnate in each of us, that we find that the thought arising from the atmosphere of spiritual realization has no adversary.

September – Community Service

Value: We dedicate our time, talent, treasure and expertise to the healthy and joyful evolution of our spiritual community, the community in which we live and the greater community of the world.

September 3 – Self-Absorbed – It’s All About ME!

Holmes, Science of Mind: We came from Life and are in Life, so we are One with Life; and we know that Instinctive Life within — which has brought us to the point of self-recognition — still knows in us the reason for all things, the purpose underlying all things; and we know that there is nothing in us of fear, doubt, or confusion which can hinder the flow of Reality to the point of our recognition.  We are guided daily by Divine Intelligence into paths of peace, wherein the soul recognizes its Source and meets It in joyful union, in complete At-One-ment.

September 10 – Lisa Ferraro & Erika Luckett are joined by musical duo, The Levins

365 Science of Mind: Real giving is the art of transmitting ourselves to others and to the conditions and situations that surround us.  This kind of giving is not something for special occasions only; for it should become a habit growing out of our desire to live life to the fullest extent.  Only that which becomes an inward habit of thought can spontaneously flow from the heart and transmit itself to everything we touch.  Just as life belongs to the one who lives it, to the one who takes it, so the fuller life belongs only to the one who scatters every good he has.  It is be giving of oneself to every person, every project, and every association with zest, love, and friendliness that one sees the larger possibility in all things; beauty instead of ugliness, love instead of hate, the Divine hidden within the human.

September 17 – Choosing Where to Give

Dr. Michael Beckwith, 40 Day Mind Fast Soul Feast: You are here to serve the great Law of Life.  You are, in fact, in service to the Supreme Creative Idea that proliferates our environment.  It is the Life of God that is thinking through your mind, working through your hands, walking through your feet.  It does the work appointed for you to do and perfects that which concerns you when you no longer “work” for the little self, but “serve” the greater Self of your being and the Universe.

September 24 – You Can Change The World

Holmes, Practical Application of Science of Mind:  There is an irresistible Universal and Divine urge within us to be happy, to be whole, and to express the fullness of Life.  The latent Divinity within us stirs our imagination and, because of Its insistent demand, impels and compels our growth.  It is back of every invention; It proclaims Itself through every creative endeavor; It has produced sages, saints, and saviors, and will, when permitted, create a new world in which war, poverty, sickness, and famine will have disappeared.
