With Open Arms


With Open Arms

— Derek Hinchliffe, RScP


Through spiritual discernment, we see that we have within us a power which is greater than anything we shall ever contact; a power that can overcome every obstacle in our experience.

— Ernest Holmes

“What is Spirit’s Highest Idea of Itself as my life?” This Sunday, Derek Hinchliffe, RScP, will explore what is required to transform and expand your life, so you can live in alignment with Spirit’s highest idea.

The possibilities for your life are infinite. It starts with an embrace. What will you welcome with open arms today?

Join Derek and the rest of the Sunday Six on Sunday, March 21, 2021 at 10:30am on Facebook Live.


This Week’s Science of Mind Theme

With Open Arms

When we consciously use the creative process, we embrace a new thought or a new idea, planting it into the creative medium, assured of its demonstration by our embodiment of it. Visioning uses the creative process to embrace a new way of being, the embodiment of which results in personal transformation.

We do not manifest the Vision; rather we attune and align ourselves with it, becoming the avenues through which it reveals itself as our lived experience.

We cannot have or experience what we are unwilling to receive. Ask: “What possibilities am I open to? What serves to transform me in my continual evolution?”

Embracing and embodying are activities of consciousness cultivation. Becoming, on the other hand, is an act of allowing. It is allowing That-which-you-already-are to come forth. Ask: “What Divine qualities within me am I being called to remember as my Truth?”

We do not manifest the Vision. It already is. We release and let go of the obstacles we have placed in its way. We embrace a new idea, embody a new belief, and we become that which we already are. In doing so, we transform ourselves.

What will you welcome with open arms today?

Grief Support Group

Many of us have experienced change and loss on many levels, especially in this last year. If you’re feeling the need for support for any kind of loss, Pauline Weninger, RScP and Rev. Melody Bailey offer a drop-in Grief Support Group. The next meeting is on Wednesday, March 24 at 7pm.

Meeting ID: 834 8775 2037

Remember when we used to hang around together after service, and check in with each other, connect, talk about the service or just share about our lives in general? Our long-time CSLK member, Laura Green, is recreating that same experience on Zoom (as closely as possible), every two weeks. If you’re looking for that community feel, come and help create it. We’re so grateful for Laura in taking the leap forward to help facilitate this time together!

Join Laura for a time of Fellowship on Zoom, directly following our Sunday Service on Facebook Live on Sunday, March 28, 2021. (You’ll have to jump over from Facebook to Zoom.) See event details.
