What's New at CSL Kelowna 💗 April 15, 2022
We are so thrilled to now be planning in-person Sunday Celebrations again!
This Sunday, April 17th, we will be back at the Rotary Centre for the Arts. We will be rocking it out with live music from Sista B and the Boyz, and we’ll have plenty of room to dance our socks off! Bring your family and friends. All are welcome! We look forward to spending our Easter Sunday morning together with our spiritual community!
This Sunday’s talk:
Out of the Cave
— Rev. Corinne Crockett
“Divine Love makes us true to ourselves and to others… Divine Love is the solution to our difficulties and problems. It frees us from every kind of binding. It makes us speak truly, think truly and act truly. It makes us feel one with the whole universe. Divine love purifies our hearts and glorifies our being.”
— Mehar Baba
Love points the way; the Law makes it possible.
Easter and the arrival of spring signal new life and new beginnings, offering us a powerful metaphor, and opportunity to re-examine our lives and beliefs that limit the expression of our True Light.
Carrying old hurts, stories, and false belief systems keeps us locked in a lonely cave of suffering. The Spiritual Truth of being whole, perfect and complete may seem true for everyone else but you. When this happens, it’s easy to feel alone. But you are not alone. Within us is a Divine Love that supports us and beckons us forward into the light of living the life we’re here to share with the world.
There’s a power for Good in the Universe, and you can use it!
That Power is Divine Love.
Join Rev. Corinne Crockett and our in-person congregation on Easter Sunday, April 17th at 10:30am PT at the Rotary Centre for the Arts!
If you are not feeling well, please stay at home and watch us on Facebook Live.
This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
Reveal, Release, Rise (Repeat)
Reveal the Truth. Release the blocks. Rise up and bless the world!
Do this again and again!
The creative message of both Passover and Easter is about rising and transcendence. We rise up to be instruments for divine creative expression when we transcend our fears, prejudices and histories.
As Jesus became no longer tomb-bound, we also live beyond our stones and barriers by choosing to live above and beyond judgements, limited thinking or ego. Through our choice to create, we can experience peace both within and without!
When challenges show up, the real challenge is in remembering to name and claim God as Source, Substance and Truth. In Truth, we are unlimited channels for possibility.
Ernest Holmes wrote that the Science of Mind is a teaching and a practice. If we want to rise up, we must practice rising up; we must practice revealing spiritual Truth; we must practice releasing that which is not spiritual Truth. Daily, we must discipline ourselves to practice rising up.
Reveal the Truth. Release the blocks. Rise up! And then, do it again!
Special In-Person Easter Sunday Celebration
Join us at the Rotary Centre for the Arts for another uplifting and inspiring in-person service on April 17th (Easter Sunday). Rev. Barbara Samuel will have her full band, Sista B and the Boyz.
We have a special service planned to celebrate the season of renewal.
Please RSVP. The service will also be livestreamed on Facebook Live.
