Setting the Table for Your Internal Song!

You are invited to hang out with Rev. Barbara Samuel and Neal Klassen as they share their Soul Food Sunday of the Internal Song.
PS: A little birdie told us it would be Ernest Holmes' 136st birthday! Let's have cake!

This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
Singing with Gratitude
Gratitude is one of the most fundamental spiritual practices in our teaching. Let’s take a deep look at this practice – and how it fits into our understanding of affirmative prayer.
When we are actively engaged in our prayer work, we are knowing the truth for ourselves or for others. Our goal as we have been learning is that we need to declare the truth with conviction. We benefit immensely from this important third step of treatment, when we implement the fourth step – by expressing gratitude.
Our attitude to gratitude is a vital part of our experience with life. A grateful heart appreciates all the good that flows, and in so doing creates an open vessel for more good to flow in.
Seeing through the fog
Last Sunday, January 15, was supposed to be a Soul Food Sunday, but Rev. Barbara Samuel and Neal Klassen were unable to fly back to Kelowna due to fog in Vancouver. Fortunately, our assistant minister, Rev. Corinne Crockett, pulled together a brilliant talk titled Our Internal Song.
Tanya Lipscomb came to our musical rescue!
After the service…
… our community stayed for some coffee and connection.
Watch the full service on YouTube.
