Our Community 💗 April 27, 2023


Join us for Sunday Celebration at Studio 9, 1180 Houghton Road, Kelowna.


Talk for this Sunday, April 30, 2023

Vulnerability: Power and Possibility

— Rev. Barbara Samuel


“Vulnerability is the birthplace of

innovation, creativity and change.”

— Brené Brown

Vulnerability becomes the gateway to power and possibility. It calls us to be who we are, create space for others to do the same, and hold on for the exciting adventure of transformation.

Rev. Barb will explore the power and possibility that vulnerability brings, not only for our own lives, but for our communities and the world. Vulnerability invites us into the powerful experience of living authentically and the collective possibility for transformation that happens as a result. Embracing, not avoiding, vulnerability becomes a catalyst for connection, expansion and evolution. It is through this that we begin to see the possibility for a radical cultural shift, one that prioritizes authenticity, connection and belonging. Collectively living life out loud.

Join Rev. Barb this Sunday, April 30 at 10:30am PT at Studio 9, 1180 Houghton Road, Kelowna, BC. Doors open at 10:15am. Please visit the event page for more details and a map. Everyone is welcome!

If you are not feeling well, please take good care of yourself and watch us on Facebook Live.


This Week’s Science of Mind Theme

Vulnerability: Power and Possibility

Embracing vulnerability becomes a catalyst for connection, expansion and evolution. We begin to see the possibility for a radical cultural shift, one that prioritizes authenticity, connection and belonging.

Authenticity is powerful. Vulnerability paves the way for us to stand in our creative power both individually and collectively. We can bring everything we have to life. We are empowered to believe and know that through our own willingness to be vulnerable and authentic, we set off a chain reaction that permeates everything that crosses our path.

Vulnerability creates a unique opportunity for the power of possibility to make itself known, both individually and collectively. It dissolves barriers, reduces the experience of disconnection, and opens the door for a greater awareness of the divine presence within us all. Possibility supports us in standing firmly in the space of what can be. It emboldens us to open our awareness, expand our view, and activate our lives in ways that speak truth to our most authentic selves.

The power of collective transformation is made possible through vulnerability. Through fostering vulnerability in our families, our communities and our world, we bring to the surface the possibility of real and dynamic change.

To be alive is to be vulnerable. To be in relationship is vulnerable. To be in community is to be vulnerable. Power, possibility and transformation can only occur when we are willing to bring our wholeness to life.


Vulnerability: Seeing and Being Seen

Last Sunday, Rev. Melody Bailey gave a talk titled Vulnerability: Seeing and Being Seen. She shared stories about her life, and about her recent trip to Kenya.

Even when it's a rainy day, you can count on our volunteers to welcome you to our Sunday service at Studio 9! (That's Tracy, Pauline and Lori under the umbrellas!)

Rev. Barbara Samuel and Neal Klassen started us off with our favourite Sunday morning song.

Rev. Diane Hockey gave a reading from the book, 365 Science of Mind: A Year of Daily Wisdom from Ernest Holmes.

Practitioner Pauline Weninger gave the affirmative prayer treatment.

Neal Klassen sang a song in the style of Kermit the Frog (at least for the first few lines)!

Volunteer Val made the coffee and provided sandwich rolls for people to enjoy after the service. Thank you, Val!

Watch the full service on YouTube.
