Opportunity or Obstacle?

Rev. Barbara Samuel


Lose what needs to be lost to find what needs to be found!

— Neale Donald Walsch


Rev. Barbara Samuel will share her inspirational and encouraging words through stories, songs and lyrics during a time when distance cannot keep our spiritual community apart.

Join us this Sunday, September 27, 2020 at 10:30am on Facebook Live.


This Week’s Point of View from the Science of Mind

When we block, hinder, and are outside of the flow of faith, we stagnate rather than flourish and thrive. Action is vital to faith. It is easy to have faith if we sit in a room, tucked away from the world, but true faith requires activity in the world. The law of circulation requires inward and outward focused activity. Holmes says:

“Only as much life enters into us as we can conceive, and we conceive of life – in the larger sense – only when there is complete abandonment to it. Let the one who is sad, depressed, or unhappy find some altruistic purpose into which he may pour his whole being and he will find a new inflow of life of which he has never dreamed.” Science of Mind, p.440

Selfless service is the next step. Ponder how you can get involved in your community. Put feet to your faith!


Community Conversations: Manifesting Health

Starting October 7, we’ll bring together a small group of people to explore new thought principles as they relate to physical health and wholeness.

The group will meet on Zoom each Wednesday for four weeks of conversation, prayer support, spiritual practice, and deep exploration of Science of Mind principles. There is no cost to take part, but a commitment to fully participate in all four weeks of content is requested. Donations to the Centre for Spiritual Living Kelowna are welcome and greatly appreciated.

This is a great opportunity for anyone who is experiencing a physical health challenge, or for someone who is in the process of making health-related changes in their life.

Each participant will have the opportunity to develop a clear intention for their health, to identify mental equivalents for the wellbeing that they wish to experience, and to uncover and release belief systems that may be affecting their physical health.

Manifesting Health will be facilitated by practitioners Derek Hinchliffe and Amanda Pope, who will also provide daily prayer support for participants throughout the 4 weeks.

Online registration is required. Please RSVP on the Manifesting Health event page. This group is limited to 10 participants.

When: Wednesdays, October 7, 14, 21 and 28 from 7pm to 8:30pm

Where: Zoom

“There is a great difference between defending life and befriending life. Defending life is often about holding on to whatever we have at all costs. Befriending life… may require us to take great risks, to let go over and over again, until we finally surrender to life’s own dream of itself.”
