Talk for this Sunday, May 28, 2023
Lights, Camera, Action!
— Rev. Jeanette Vinek
I shine my unique light on life’s centre stage.
We live life’s performance on the centre stage. We get to decide if we live fully out loud or hide our light. We are each blessed with a bright light, so why not radiate our special brilliance at its fullest?
Join Rev. Jeanette this Sunday, May 28 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
Lights, Camera, Action!
We have to show up and engage in order to participate. If we don’t take centre stage and be the star of our own performance, then we give silent permission for others to decide the destiny of our life.
When we take centre stage, there’s an opportunity for us to show up consciously and authentically and fully bring who we are. There’s also an opportunity to tap in and dig deep to allow our true divine selves to shine like no other time before.
We each have a special purpose in life that is ours to bring forth to the centre stage. How we play our role is paramount to the picture and performance.
Our individual lights help the collective light to shine brighter. What we may call imperfection is the perfection of God. We are as we are and can show up just like that.
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Last weekend, we had a Soul Food Sunday. Rev. Barb Samuel gave a talk titled Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.
A bunch of people happened to be at the Studio 9 entrance all at the same time, so we took a group photo! Left to right: Rev. Corinne, Ron, Cassie, Irene, Pam, Angela and Rev. Melody.
Rev. Melody Bailey gave the affirmative prayer treatment.
The treatment inspired Rev. Barb to sing Say a Little Prayer.
Neal and Rev. Barb also sang Lean On Me.
Neal did his Science Corner piece.
And of course, there was coffee and cookies after service.
Watch the full service on YouTube.
3rd Pride Work Bee & Potluck Appie Evening
this coming Wednesday, May 31!
We got together once again at Studio 9 this past Wednesday, May 24. to create cooling neck wraps and bookmarks to give away at the Pride Festival. It was also a potluck appie evening. And guess what? We're going to do it one more time!
When: Wednesday, May 31, 5:30pm to 9pm
Where: Studio 9 (1180 Houghton Rd, Kelowna, BC V1X 2C9)
Details: See the event page or contact Rev. Corinne Crockett at 250-868-9090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some photos from the 2nd Pride Work Bee this past week.
Left to right (standing): Kathy, Jean, Tracy, Annie, Val; (seated): Rev. Corinne, Rev. Diane, Lori, Rev. Melody, Magda.
Jean was overheard saying, "I love ironing!" And so, Lori kept bringing more rainbow strips for Jean to affix iron-on CSLK labels and to neatly flatten the strips.
A few new bookmark designs were added this week.
Everyone worked hard at the various tasks, all the while chatting…
… and laughing…
… and helping each other out!
Will you join us next week?
See the details of our 3rd Pride Work Bee on Wednesday, May 31!
CSL Kelowna at the Pride Festival
Pride is right around the corner and we’re delighted to have been granted a spot at the Pride Festival. This is a call to participate prior and/or on that date.
We stand with the LGBTQIA2+ community. Pride symbolizes not only the celebration of each person’s right to be who they are and love who they love, but it is also a demonstration of radical self-love and love for all.
We’ll be looking for volunteers for our booth to do two-hour time slots.
We have such a wonderful time; you’ll want to be part of the event.
When: Saturday, June 10, 8am to 4pm
Where: City Park, downtown Kelowna
Details: See the event page or contact Rev. Corinne Crockett at 250-868-9090 or email@example.com
Our ministers and practitioners are in service to all of us. If you need help to see the Truth in a situation; if you are looking for clarity; if you are struggling in this challenging time; our ministers and practitioners are here to support you. You can contact them through the About page on our website, or you can submit a prayer request on the Contact page.
