To Boldly Go Towards the New Day — Dr. Harry Morgan Moses
We have been born into an extraordinary time. Every Soul has come here with a purpose. We have been gifted with an extraordinary awareness. “Love points the way and Law makes the way possible”. With this gift we can boldly with confidence move into the dawning of a new day for ourselves, humanity and the earth.
Where do we go from here? — Dr. Mike McMorrow
The last few years have been interesting to say the least. We've had the summer to get our legs under us and we may have found the world has changed a bit. People are working from home, our kids are behind in school, and people have forgotten how to drive! Things are shifting! Now is the perfect time to rebuild something New and Wonderful. At home. on the job, and our spiritual communities. Where do we go from here? Let's start from the centre!
Read their bios below.
Join the Gordons and our in-person congregation this Sunday, November 27th 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 stay at home and watch us on Facebook Live.
The SOM theme for December is Living Everyday Wonder — Community.
Community is where we play out our lives on a larger scale – both consciously and unconsciously. It’s the first circle in what ultimately creates our larger societal structures beginning with family, all the way through to the culture of a country. The beautiful alchemy of community unfolds when we come into realization that through our spheres of influence, we intersect with the greater whole each and every day.
This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
Longing to Belong
The Science of Mind leads people into wholeness. Being in community, creating an inviting space where not only the individual but the community flourishes, assists in creating a world that works for everyone.
Our human need to belong is our innate state of being. We come into this world with a need to belong to someone. Without belonging, we whither, we fail to thrive.
Sometimes we protect ourselves from the fear of rejection by saying “I don’t belong here” (to this spiritual community, to this city, to this country). We isolate ourselves, to avoid the pain of anticipated rejection. We need to lean into our urge to belong, which calls us to be both vulnerable and transparent.
In your seat right now, you belong. You are of Spirit – a divine being of Light. Each one of you is a bright light. You belong here. You have been called here. Simply being you is enough.
“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten
that we belong to each other.”
— Mother Teresa
Everything You Wanted to Know About the Science of Mind and Aren't Afraid to Ask!
If you missed last Sunday’s service with the Gordons, titled Everything You Wanted to Know About the Science of Mind and Aren't Afraid to Ask! you can watch the replay on YouTube.
Questions from our congregation were submitted in advance, and the Gordons put them all in a paper back, picking out questions at random. There were a few additional questions asked by people present in the room, too.
Neal Klassen and Rev. Barb Samuel sang I Saw the Light (Hank Williams)!
