It’s a week of new beginnings for us with our inaugural open-to-all Sunday Celebration at our new in-person location, Studio 9! And to make it extra special, it will be a Soul Food Sunday, too! After the service, we’ll have the coffee on so we can stay and connect!
This Sunday’s talk:
I Love Us!
— Rev. Barbara Samuel
“Home is where you drop your anchor.”
Join Rev. Barb, Neal, and our in-person congregation for a Soul Food Sunday on April 24th at 10:30am PT. Doors open at 10:15am. Please visit the event page for the address and parking details. Everyone is welcome!
If you are not feeling well, please stay at home and watch us on Facebook Live.
This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
Your dreams are waiting for you to come true. It’s time to bring our creative selves (and whatever it is we are wanting to do) to the world!
If we want to be victorious, we must be vulnerable. We must open our hearts, let down our ego defences and dare to live authentically, if we want the rewards of a well-lived life.
When we vision for guidance and insights, we reveal magnificent ideas which can both anchor us in faith and launch us into lives of meaning and passion. From our practiced oneness with all life, God, and each other, and our committed availability to Greater Wisdom, we become powerful vehicles for transformation, healing and newness. Spiritual mind treatment is our superpower. Let’s use it to be alive, whole-hearted beings!
We live in a field of Infinite Wisdom and Wholeness. “Pure Potentiality” means unlimited thinking can and will produce unlimited good. What if we knew for certain that the thing we are embarrassed about or have always been told to change or not do, turned out to be the very gift that Spirit placed within us to bless the world in ways unimaginable? “It's all God.”
All creation starts with a “yes”. We long to feel alive, awake, energized and uplifted. Step out of your comfort zone and step into your authentic spirituality. Dare to tell the spiritual truth of your life so that you can begin to tell the creative truth of your life.
Be bold! Dare to be and to show up as the creative expression you already are.
Inaugural Open-to-All Service at Studio 9!
Everyone is welcome to join us for our very first open-to-all, in-person Sunday Celebration at our new location, Studio 9, this Sunday, April 24th, and every Sunday for the foreseeable future!
We are looking forward to seeing you! Plan to stay a while for coffee and fellowship after the service.
