“What is Christmas? It is the tenderness of the past, courage for the present, and hope for the future.”
— Agnes Pahro
There is no service this Sunday, December 27, 2020. We will return to Facebook Live on Sunday, January 3, 2021 at 10:30 am.
Dr. Kenn and I wish you and yours all the blessings of wonder and awe that seem to be infused in so much of what we see, hear and feel over this holiday time of year.
The end of this year has brought a vaccine for COVID-19, a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn that hasn’t been seen for 800 years, and insights from each of our own personal experiences. This all feels like a true opportunity for re-birth and positive change.
Let’s make this holiday season a doorway into greater peace and love. In my heart of hearts, I’m affirming this can be the time of a major shift for humanity, to one of healing, wholeness and bringing greater peace and unity than ever before. This is my Christmas wish for each of you!
From our home to yours, we send you all much light, love and gratitude,
Message from the Editor: Last year (2019) was the first time I recorded video at the Celebration of Light. I had a hunch it was especially important. I am happy to share with you once again, the amazing Barbara Samuel! — Annie (Zed) Zalezsak
O Holy Night
This Week’s Point of View from the Science of Mind
Life does not create randomly. We are each, through our understanding and to the degree we cooperate with it, using the Law of Mind to create a magical, joyful, enchanting life! Nature is remarkable: watching a sunrise, seeing a flower bloom, or experiencing the rainfall which feeds the earth.
The creative life is magical: moments of synchronicity, gaining wisdom, discovering clarity, and feeling inner peace. Mindful reflection of new ways that love, joy and peace are showing up allows us to become more and more receptive to the Infinite Divine Truth that is ever present. Open the door of your heart and welcome in Good. Say “yes” to life!
Slow down to notice and celebrate the magical, mystical life we are now living. It is happening through you and as you! Envision your boldest, highest idea for life and align with that in thought, word and deed. Allow your imagination and delight in life to empower your thought. Let inspiration guide your word. Nurture your faith to fulfill your deed!
World Healing Peace Meditation
We’ll be joining Centers for Spiritual Living’s global World Healing Peace Meditation on December 31st at 4am PST (noon GMT). More than 500 million people from an array of faith traditions and philosophies across seven continents, will be meditating simultaneously from their own homes.
The gatherings begin at precisely the same moment all around the world and in many languages, to pray in the ways of each individual’s own traditions. We each affirm Peace and commit to do our part to heal the world. It is truly an amazing experience to sense the consciousness and the presence of hundreds of millions of people sharing the hour!
Jan and John Randolph Price launched the first World Healing Meditation on December 31, 1986, to achieve a critical mass of spiritual consciousness and usher in a new era of Peace on Earth. The World Healing Meditation – an immersion in Oneness dedicated to restoring the world to sanity by dissolving the sense of separation – has been held annually at precisely the same time ever since.
